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.
Exterior of the Beverly Hills Brown Derby, located at 9537 Wilshire Boulevard at Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Christmas decorations adorn the street light directly near the restaurant's entrance, and the Aida Grey Institut de Beaute´ (far left) and another storefront (left of center) are also present. After the building was occupied by the third Brown Derby from 1931 to 1982, it was demolished and replaced with a new commercial structure designed for high-end retail.
