Just uploaded my first photo essay book to Blurb.com – Los Angeles – Yesterday’s Places Today. Give me a couple of weeks for it to be printed, shipped and for me have a look at the first copy, then I will open it up for others to order. Meanwhile, I’ll feature some of the photos from the book.
Los Angeles Theatre. 615 S. Broadway. 1931. S. Charles Lee, architect
Located on Broadway between 6th and 7th, the Los Angeles Theatre opened its doors in 1931 with the gala premiere of Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights. At a construction cost of $1.5 million it was the most opulent and last theater built along this historic stretch of Broadway. Imitating in the style of the Fox Theater in San Francisco, its opulence reflects the glories of the Bourbon palace at Versailles.
