Los Angeles, Through Ansel Adams' Eyes
LAist wrote about it last March, and the LA City Nerd and Montecito Heights blogger pick up on it now: A series of great, old shots of L.A. taken by photog Ansel Adams.
Gerard Van der Leun found the shots, which Adams took for Fortune mag, through the Los Angeles Public Library and its online photo collection. Van der Leun took a bunch of the shots and organized them on a Flickr set.
Above, a classic shot of City Hall -- with the beautiful (and sadly, long, long gone) Hall of Records next to it. And below, a pic of the Earl Carroll building (now Nickelodeon on Sunset), which has been in the news lately (because it's about to be sold, and its fate in unclear).
