Peter Moruzzi discusses and leads a slide show of his new historical photography book, Greetings From Los Angeles. A historian, Moruzzi has written similar pictorials on vintage Havana, Palm Springs and mid-century restaurants. Using old photographs, postcards, brochures and other archival material, Moruzzi traces Los Angeles’ timeline, from when the city was a Spanish pueblo in 1781 and when California became a state in 1850 to the Depression, WWII and the 1960s. The book’s chapters cover L.A.’s water and power, Venice, Chinatown, film studios, amusement parks and police corruption.
