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.
Looking east across 9th Street in Santa Monica towards an A&W drive-in restaurant located at 901 Wilshire Boulevard; the sign identifies both the A&W and a Chubby Chicken Coffee Shop.

Salt Fish & Chips were later demolished and replaced with a 3-story office building.
