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.
Looking north across the street towards a structure with two businesses, Heritage Cleaners and Sir Speedy Printing, located at 9045 and 9047 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills; an office building is present on the right. All of these buildings have been razed.
