Thanks, everyone!

I went to a book fair last Sunday, and took these pictures. Can anyone tell where I took them from (besides the obvious - a parking lot!)?







I apologize; not the greatest quality... but at least I'm contributing. Some of the rest of you need to contribute as well - especially those of you who really love L.A. and all it has to offer. We're waiting...

Venice Beach 1920




Marineland (Palos Verdes) Undated



Twenty three years ago


The 405 (San Diego Freeway, even though it didn't go to San Diego) in 1962, view looking north into the San Fernando Valley. Probably around 7:30 AM, right?


Hollywood Freeway Construction 1953



Opening of one-half of the giant Colorado Freeway Bridge in Pasadena, 1953.

The opening of Topanga Plaza, 1964. Rocketdyne is visible on the left side (east) across Owensmouth avenue.


LAX 1962, almost looks like you could drive up 30 minutes before takeoff. No bulldog security cops in the streets. No double decker terminals. Look at that parking lot.


Pacific Electric Car 5111 On San Fernando Valley Line Circa 1950. What a great shot. Note the man taking a photo on the far left.

Los Angeles map 1941 (You really have to expand this to appreciate it.) Note all the little airplane symbols indicating airports.

Default Street Scenes in Los Angeles

What is interesting is all of the single family homes (not really seen in the photos) that surround the scenes in these photos are $500K and up.

Due to complaints about the copyright of some of the photos in this thread, I am temporarily closing it. Once the issue is resolved, I hope to open it ASAP.

Please only posts photos that you took. Posting copyrighted pictures of others is against our forum TOS and against the U.S. law.

Thanks to those of you who have offered positive feedback and support for sharing photos of LA in this thread. Since a small, but vocal minority objected to having their photos downloaded from Flickr (despite freely giving people the ability to do so) there is nothing in City Data's TOS that bans including links to photos, web sites, or other material found on the Internet, and there is no state or federal law banning it either! The use of links is consistent with Flickr's community guidelines as well, so here are links to some of the photos I found and previously posted of the West LA area. This way you will be able to see a greater volume and variety of photographs not only of West LA but of other areas in LA too.

Most of my photos are from Oregon. But it was fun getting some pics during my first visit to the LA area a bit over a month ago.

I liked this particular palm in front of a building by the Amtrak station. And the other is of a tree blossom that was nice.
