Covering the history and geography of Los Angeles and Pasadena between 1900 and 1950, the collection of over 200 vintage postcards compiled in this new volume offers a unique glimpse into turn-of-the-century southern California. As communication by postcards became popular in the late 19th century, those who received them were offered a rare view of the "right here, right now" aspect that only postcard photography could offer. From the earliest images of the Angels' Flight in Los Angeles, to the Tournament of Roses parades gliding down Colorado Street, the authors celebrate the history of these two beautiful cities through the personal medium of vintage postcards.
