This thread is truly amazing! I can't believe I didn't find it until now.

I've made it to page 55 so far. Early 20th Century LA looks like London, Paris or SF. Why were the preservationists unsuccessful in LA, yet successful in SF for the most part? Sacramento also lost a huge part of its historical riverfront and chinatown to redevelopment and the I-5 freeway.

I guess I never really thought about what Downtown LA looked like in the 00's, 10's, 20's and 30's. We now know where the set designers from the Addams Family and Munsters got their inspiration.

The deco and streamline pics are just as amazing!
