Retro Friday: Los Angeles in the 1940s



This may be one of the most amazing old Los Angeles videos I've seen on YouTube. A look at 1940s Los Angeles, filled with buildings that are no longer with us, including the Ambassador Hotel and the Richfield Building, which to this day is beyond shocking that it was torn down. Tragic.

The narrator sounds like an early version of Shadoe Stevens.

actually, most of the landmarks still exist. the tar pits, the may co bldg, the bullocks wilshire, the farmer's market, city hall...they're all still there. i'm gonna say not terribly tragic, but still a great video.
