L.A. Times and L.A. Daily News photos, 1920-1990

May 14th, 2007

From the UCLA Library website:

“The UCLA Charles E. Young Research Library Department of Special Collections has selected and digitized 5,124 of the more than three million images contained in the Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles Daily News photographic archives. The photographs chronicle the history and growth of Los Angeles from the 1920s to 1990.”

Another resource for old and archived photos. Searchable via keyword or subject. Cool.

There are so many amazing photographs here from a town that grew like an uncontrollable weed. So many subjects were covered, and it’s only 5,124 of more than three million images. Here’s a shot of a Southern California freeway from June 21, 1966, with different minimum speeds for different lanes. Imagine enforcing that.
