The highestÂ resolution available for this image is 300 dpi.; Title supplied by cataloger. This collection is comprised of approximately 1,000 slides capturing buildings along Wilshire Boulevard. The slides were taken during Tuesday afternoon walks in 1978-1979 by Marlene Laskey and her 15-year-old daughter, Annie, who was the primary photographer. Marlene (1933-1989) was a Michigan native who moved to Los Angeles in the 1950s and became a Los Angeles historian and architecture enthusiast. At the time of her death from cancer, Marlene was working on a Master of Urban Planning degree at UCLA, and was an interviewer for UCLA's Oral History program. Looking northeast across the street towards the Manufacturers Bank Building (right), originally known as Roxbury Plaza, located at 9701 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. This unique office building, in the shape of an undulating parallelogram, was designed by Anthony Lumsden of DMJM. Another office/commercial building is seen on the left and Christmas decorations in the shape of large snowflakes line the street.
