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 up at balconies of condominiums in a high-rise building now known as Sterling Wilshire, located at 10717 Wilshire Boulevard in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Designed by Maurice H. Fleishman, the complex opened up in 1951 as the Westwood Towers.
