Wilshire Blvd. History Slideshow
LAPL Photo Friends presents a free virtual stroll down 1970s Wilshire Boulevard, as captured on Kodachrome slides by Annie Laskey and her mom Marlene. Over a dozen afternoons in 1978 and 1979, Marlene and Annie walked the entire length of Wilshire Boulevard from downtown to the ocean. Marlene took notes; Annie took pictures. The result was over 1,000 Kodachrome slides documenting L.A.'s iconic street from its great landmarks to its empty lots. Mark Taper Auditorium, Central Library. 2-3 p.m. (Free).
