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 west down Wilshire Boulevard towards S. Westgate Avenue in West Los Angeles. On the right is the entrance to the parking lot for La Barbera's Italian Restaurant, located at 11813 Wilshire; it was later demolished and replaced with a strip mall. The Mandarin Inn, a Chinese restaurant at 11829 (center), later became a Mexican restaurant. Other businesses along the boulevard are present left of center.
