Retro Friday: Los Angeles in the 1920s
Here's a pretty amazing silent film from the 1920s depicting the L.A. of that era -- with shots of "Central Park" (now Pershing Square); Angels Flight; old Chinatown; Broadway; UCLA; the old Plaza; and more.
And check out "Life in Hollywood," circa 1927. We see "Warner Bros." in Hollywood, which today, of course, is KTLA and the Sunset Bronson Studios. And there's a shot at the end of "Vitagraph Studios," which has been the ABC/Disney-owned Prospect Studios for years.
Here's part two of "Life in Hollywood" 1927.
