Here is a view of 1970’s downtown L.A. (you can see City Hall poking out of the crowd on the right side) as buildings were getting taller, and taller, and taller. For a view that really shows this little developed area as an island, look what The Huntington just posted.
We’re teaming up The Huntington’s tumblr to bring you historic Los Angeles images on Wednesdays through August 6 as part of No Further West.
