Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Los Angeles, the City of Angels, is the capital of show business, where to be young and beautiful is to have it all. Los Angeles Then & Now is a captivating chronicle of history and change in the mecca of glamour and glitz.
  • This tell-all book matches 70 historic images with 70 specially-commissioned photos of modern LA, showing the amazing evolution of Californias largest city.

  • Notice how Native American and Spanish Colonial architectural and cultural influences reside comfortably alongside the glitz of Tinseltown and the cosmopolitan high-rises of LA.

  • Movie fans will enjoy the many then-and-now pix of legendary Hollywood landmarks like Schwabs Pharmacy, Paramount Studios, Graumans Chinese Theater, and the Roosevelt Hotel.

  • Along with a “Map to the Stars Homes,” this compact edition of best-selling Los Angeles Then & Now makes the perfect travel guide. 

Synopsis:

Celebrating one of America's favorite cityscapes--from Olvera Street to the Hollywood hills--this book reveals the history of Los Angeles through rare archival photographs and specially commissioned, full-color photographs of the same scenes today.
