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 southwest across Wilshire Boulevard where it meets S. Gramercy Place, showing the eastern end of an Art Deco shopping/dining center where the Chicken Delight restaurant is located at 3951 Wilshire Boulevard. The entire center covering from 3951 to 3973 Wilshire Boulevard was later razed and replaced with Wilshire Gramercy Plaza. The 5-story office building at 3960 Wilshire is seen in the background.
