Now you can travel back in time (well, at least to the 1970s) through the recently published photographs of Anne Laskey and her mother Marlene, which are now part of the Los Angeles Public Library‘s historic photo collection.
The collection was recently reported in the LAist blog, which said:
“For two years in the latter part of the decade, Laskey and her 15-year-old daughter Annie would walk Wilshire Boulevard on Tuesday afternoons, shooting gorgeous slides and documenting the city as it was, from the beach to downtown. Marlene, who had moved from Michigan in the 1950s, was a historian and architecture enthusiast. Her teenage daughter was the primary photographer. These photos are now part of the Los Angeles Public Library’s amazing photo collection, available for all to see.”
