Physical Description: 2 archival document boxes

Series Description

This series is comprised of approximately eighty photographs of late nineteenth and twentieth century Los Angeles, as well as several press releases dated 1964, that depict well-known Los Angeles sites such as the Music Center and the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena around the time of their opening. Of particular interest in this series are photographs of nineteenth century illustrations of downtown Los Angeles, Chinatown, the Plaza, the Courthouse, the Los Angeles Cable Railway, and portraits of Pio Pico (1801-1894), last governor of Mexican California; Stephen White; and Caytano Buellna, the last driver of the Butterfield Stage. This series also contains photographs of such twentieth-century buildings as Our Lady Queen of Angels, Olvera Street, the Los Angeles Mission, Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Music Center.
The photographs that comprise this series have been collected from a number of sources, including the Behrendt Collection at the Los Angeles County Museum Library, the Title Insurance and Trust Company Collection at the University of Southern California, the Huntington Library and Art Gallery, and the Southern California Historical Society. Again, please note that the Research Collection does not hold the copyright to the photographs in this collection.

Series 2: Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce Photographs. 1920s-1940s

Physical Description: 3 archival document boxes, 1 oversize folder

Series Description

This series is comprised of approximately 175 photographs, which were acquired by Carroll and Lorrin Morrison from the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. The photographs in this series depict subjects from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and serve to illustrate both residential and business life in Los Angeles during this period. Included here are photographs of factories such as the Sperry Flour Company, Los Angeles Soap Company, Llewellyn Iron Works, Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, Hammond Lumber Company, U.S. Motors, the Westinghouse plant, and several furniture manufacturer showrooms. Additionally, this series contains a large number of photographs of residential homes built in Los Angeles and throughout the surrounding areas, including Pasadena, Glendale, Walnut Park, Alhambra, and Altadena. This combination of photographs, documenting both industrial sites and residences, including numerous photographs of Los Angeles bungalows of the 1920s, makes this series an excellent source for the study of Los Angeles architectural history. Portraits of John circa Fremont (1813-1890), explorer; William Godfrey, the first California photographer; and John Steven McGroarty (1862-1944), journalist and author, can also be found in this series.
