One of my favorite spots on the web these days is Nathan Masters' excellent series of Los Angeles history lessons over at KCET's website. I live for this stuff, as many of you do as well -- so do yourself a favor and bookmark LA As Subject, part of KCET's "SoCal Focus."

Here are a few recent examples from 2012:

A Brief History of the Los Angeles Plaza, the City's Misplaced Heart

Why L.A. Has Clashing Street Grids

Sonoratown: Downtown L.A.'s Forgotten Neighborhood

How Santa Monica Almost Became a Commercial Harbor

Lost Tunnels of Downtown L.A.
