Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the early 20th century, there was no better example of a classic American downtown than Los Angeles. Since World War II, Los Angeles's Historic Core has been "passively preserved," with most of its historic buildings left intact. Recent renovations of the area for residential use and the construction of Disney Hall and the Staples Center are shining a new spotlight on its many pre-1930s Beaux Arts, Art Deco, and Spanish Baroque buildings.

About the Author

The Historic Core of Los Angeles boasts a team of distinguished contributing authors including Curtis C. Roseman, professor emeritus of geography at USC; Ruth Wallach, head of the Architecture and Fine Arts Library at USC; Dace Taube, the Regional History Collection librarian for Specialized Libraries and Archival Collections at USC; Linda McCann, project director of the Los Angeles Comprehensive Bibliographic Database at USC; and Geoffrey DeVerteuil, assistant professor of geography at the University of Manitoba specializing in urban geography. The bulk of the images in this book come from the Regional History Collection of the USC libraries, including archives from the California Historical Society, the Los Angeles Examiner, and the "Dick" Whittington collection.
