Port of Los Angeles: An Illustrated History from 1850 to 1945

Port of Los Angeles: An Illustrated History from 1850 to 1945 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Port of Los Angeles has served its region for a century, not just by bringing ships and their cargo to Southern California, but by establishing Los Angeles as a major presence on the international maritime scene. Because of its Port, Los Angeles is the key that has opened North America to the Pacific Rim and brought the world closer together. With more than 275 images and in-depth research, Port of Los Angeles explores the history not just of the Port, but of the development of Los Angeles, from pueblo to metropolis. For everyone who loves a compelling tale illustrated with vintage images, many never before published, Port of Los Angeles is a must-have volume. With a Foreword by Geraldine Knatz, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Port, Port of Los Angeles captures an era and shows how a harbor shapes the future of a city, a country and the world.
