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 up at the exteriors of Eaters Digest Restaurant and the Music Hall Theatre (right), later the Laemmle Music Hall, an Art Deco movie theater located at 9036 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Opened as the Elite, the theater was designed by Wilfred B. Verity in 1936.
