Details

From the first known photograph to the most recent sweeping vistas, this photographic tribute to the City of Angels provides a fascinating journey through the city's cultural, political, industrial, and sociological history. It traces L.A.'s development from the 1880s real estate boom, through the early days of Hollywood and the urban sprawl of the late 20th century, right up to the present day. Over 500 images show Los Angeles emerging from a desert wasteland to become a palm-studded urban metropolis.
