William Reagh then and later

William Reagh, one of the top Los Angeles photographic chroniclers, did a series of then and now comparisons of images he had taken of the downtown los angeles streetscape in the 1950's and 1960's. Reagh went back to the same vantage points in the late 1980's to show the amazing changes that took place.

All images are California State Library
