Harper Collins

Los Angeles: The and Now

$ 9.95

A perfect souvenir-size book featuring all the best-known tourist  locations from Los Angeles, including a number of vintage color photos.  Using archive photos paired with their modern equivalent, Los Angeles: Then and Now  charts the development of the city from the days of orange groves and  melon patches and isolated Spanish mission buildings to the staggering  metropolis it is today. With a background in the movie business,  Rosemary Lord interlaces the arrival of the Hollywood era and the growth  of the city she has lived in for twenty-five years. Since its original  publication in 2002, Los Angeles: Then and Now has been  rephotographed, revised with new content, and completely redesigned.  This new compact gift edition includes exclusive matchups. Sites include  Old Plaza Church, Olvera Street, Chinatown, Union Station, Mayan  Theatre, Angel's Flight, Los Angeles Public Library, Biltmore Hotel,  Bullocks Wilshire, Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, Sunset and  Vine, Egyptian Theatre, Grauman's Chinese Theatre, Roosevelt Hotel,  Schwab's Pharmacy, Beverly Hills Hotel, Venice Beach, and Santa Monica  Pier.
