Archiving Angeles (AA): Population Boomtown

The writing was on the wall at 6th & Spring: “Population 1920 – 1,000,000. Grasp the situation.”

They had no idea.

The year was 1912.

  1. I know I have a photo with an old Garland sign on it and I know I have photos from 6th and Spring St. as we did work on that tall building in the background. I’m running a search right now to see if I have a photo of that Garland sign. Should be interesting. So far, I’ve matched 4 of your AA photos to my recent photos.
