This collection includes approximately 40,000 photographs by commercial photographer Ralph Morris, who worked in the Los Angeles area from 1939-1981. His advertising and industrial clients included department stores, restaurants, the automobile and petroleum industries as well as business executives. Also included is the Luckhaus Studio collection of architecture, fashion, the movie industry, sports and street scenes, images which Morris obtained in 1939. Two views of zoo aviaries in the early years. On top is the ground level and trees for some birds. The bottom picture shows at least 2 American eagles perched on higher rocks. This was probably in the Griffith Park Zoo which operated from 1913 to 1966.
