Where in LA?

http://blogging.la/archives/images/2007/09/Sepulveda%20and%20Magnolia-thumb.jpgWhile we’re on the subject of archives … right after I posted below about NARA’s ARC, I ran across a reference to the USC Digital Archive on Here in Van Nuys (which has some great 1951 gang photos posted). The USC archive has an easy interface and is a lot of fun to poke around in if you ‘re an archive geek like me. Among the collections that are searchable through the USC page are the AAA collection, 1892-1963; the Japanese American Relocation Digital Archive; and the Los Angeles Examiner Collection. The picture here comes from the California Historical Society. Where in LA? Click here to find out.

  1. Sweet jeebus, I used to live near there, what have we done? Paved over and built a parking lot?
    Geek, naw maybe a documentarial fanatic. Thanks for the link, I love that stuff too.

  2. I’ve geeked out on that very digital library. There’s tons of great pics of Van Nuys Boulevard when there was nothing but a train stop where the courthouse and everything now stands.

  3. My point exactly….things changed and not for the better unless you own stock in concrete and asphalt
