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 southwest from the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and S. ("Little") Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills towards a commercial building occupied by Wilson's House of Suede & Leather. Many years later, this storefront, located at 9844 Wilshire Boulevard, became a Starbuck's coffee shop.
