Famous Los Angeles Landmarks Prominently Featured in New Photographic History Book

'Los Angeles Views of the Past and Present' Highlights 63 Historical Sites

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 28, 2005 /PRNewswire/ -- No other city has captured the attention and imagination of the world quite as much as Los Angeles.

The story of the city's fascinating past is documented in the large-format photographic book "Los Angeles Views of the Past and Present." In addition to Downtown Los Angeles, the book highlights landmarks throughout Los Angeles County, including Hollywood, Santa Monica, Pasadena and Beverly Hills.

Featuring an introduction from Catherine Mulholland, granddaughter of William Mulholland, the book contains painstakingly recreated present-day shots alongside vintage photos from local archives and historical societies. Each photo caption written by co-author Marc Wanamaker contains historical anecdotes that separate the real Los Angeles from the myths that often surround the city.

"'Los Angeles Views of the Past and Present' illustrates the rapid growth of this city from its humble eighteenth-century beginnings to its status as one of the largest cities in the world today," says photographer and co-author George Ross Jezek. "Los Angeles Views of the Past and Present" is available at major retail bookstores, membership warehouses and independent bookstores. Check this page also for purchasing through amazo.com
