FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC - and back by popular demand
Re-edited version of our 3rd Marie Northrop lecture from June 5, featuring newly-digitized footage from the LA City Archives. Our new-and-improved version of the lecture is offered for all who missed it the first time — or would like to see it again.
This screening will present a side of Los Angeles mostly unknown to the general public. Recently digitized films and videos from the city archives capture scenes from various city departments such as the LAPD and Public Works. Recruiting and training evolve alongside city scenes and landscapes that have changed to be unrecognizable in some places. Join us as we take a new look at L.A. through its home movies. Rated G for all audiences.
This lecture series is co-sponsored by Los Angeles City Historical Society and the History Department of the Richard J. Riordan Central Library.
Presented by Michael Holland, City Archivist in the Office of the City Clerk and a board member of LACHS.
