LA Weekly 1978-2018
We continue our exploration of Los Angeles and its cultural backstory with an enviable collection of LA Weekly. And while its drastically less impressive today (thanks to unfortunate changes in leadership), the importance in mining its vast history cannot be overlooked.

Our collection barely dents the forty year time span, and much like our Los Angeles Free Press collection, the focus is on film and music. It's a nostalgic look at midnight movies at the Nuart, shopping for antique robes at Flip on Melrose, and bands with funny names playing Madame Wong's in Chinatown.
Los Angeles Free Press
L.A.'s legendary underground newspaper gets a thorough examination here. We've compiled a number of issues between 1966 and 1976, providing insightful essays on film, music and places of interest.

Offering a vast amount of historical significance, these issues shed a fascinating light from the days of KRLA and KMET, the Troubadour and the Whisky, Cinematheque-16 and psychedelic coffee shops along Fairfax Avenue.

The trip starts here…
Pictorial California
Continuing to build on our extensive collection of Los Angeles artifacts, we've curated a selection of Pictorial California and the Pacific.

The richly illustrated magazine ("24 pages in Rotogravure") was published by Eugene Swarzwald of Keystone Photo Services in downtown Los Angeles.
A visual rapid-fire excursion of vintageg ads and cinematic bits and bobs. All ads curated from the collection.

A gentle drive across town, from downtown to Santa Monica; set to the backdrop of vintage photographs and slides. No parking, no valet, no worries. A short visual trip featuring some of California's finest motels and hotels from the 1960s and 70s.
Los Angeles Magazine
The birth of Los Angeles Magazine humbly began in 1958 with four college friends working from a living room in Claremont. We explore the interesting history with over ninety issues, spanning the 1960s through to the 90s. After that, things got a bit naff.
Exemplary collection of vintage Los Angeles images, courtesy of Sawyer's View-Master reels. We've done the hard work, so no need to look to the light and squint (unless you think it helps).
