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 across the street towards the Saks Fifth Avenue department store, located at 9600 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills; merchandise is seen on display in the store's ground floor windows. Three prominent architects, John and Donald Parkinson, and Paul R. Williams, were chosen to design this classic structure, the first location in Southern California for the high-end store.
