WPA Guide to depression era Los Angeles May 30 2013
By Alan Gregg Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Typical of the WPA guides that were written in the 1930's and funded by the FDR administration - although it follows a standard format - this guide in particular is a very interesting look at a Los Angeles few would recognize today. Besides being the motion picture capital of the world, and having an active oil industry, I'm sure many would be surprised at the ruralness of the region surrounding Los Angeles that was awash in citrus and fruit groves and a large diary farming region. This is also pre-freeway Los Angeles, where many small towns existed even within the city limits along with the extensive farms and ranches of the San Fernando Valley which were also within Los Angeles' vast corporate limits. This guide gives true insight how Los Angeles became the model for the decentralized sprawling metropolis it is today, and that other sunbelt cities have followed in it's path.
