Los Angeles in the 1900s

Came across a spiffy website: Los Angeles in the 1900s. “A collection of contemporary articles, advertisements and illustrations about the City of the Angels at the turn of the last century.”

It includes one of those email forwarding-fodder lists, If you were living in Los Angeles a hundred years ago. “If you were a man living in Hollywood, chances are you would vote to outlaw the sale of beer and wine except at drug stores. If you were a woman living there, you couldn’t vote.”

  1. Lordy, me too. I especially liked the Angel Flight article showing the changes over the years. Like one of those time-lapse movies. Or SimCity. ;)
