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.
Looking southeast from across the street towards the Dominguez-Wilshire Building, located at 5410 Wilshire Boulevard. Storefronts are seen on the ground floor, which originally housed a Myer Siegel Department Store, and offices occupy the eight-story tower. This classic Art Deco structure was designed by Morgan, Walls & Clements and built in 1930.
