Description
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.; Title supplied by cataloger; The highest resolution available for this image is 300 dpi.
Exterior view of the Bullock's Wilshire department store, located at 3050 Wilshire Boulevard, as seen from the rear parking lot. The store was designed by John and Donald Parkinson and built in 1929, but the two-level parking lot shown here was designed by Welton Becket and Associates and added in 1953. In the mid-1990s, the department store was restored and became the library for the Southwestern Law School.
