Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Los Angeles County Department of Health Collection covers the range of departmental activities from approximately 1930 through 1932. The Bureau of Housing and the Bureau of Inspection are two of the divisions represented in the collection. The photographs depict such things as housing, schools, water supply, swimming pools, sewage disposal, dairy farms and milk plants, garbage and refuse disposal, and general sanitation to name but a few topics. Of particular interest is the volume documenting the "Hoover Towns" which sprang up throughout Los Angeles during the Great Depression. In contrast is the volume showcasing the "state-of-the-art" housing for Olympic athletes who were in Los Angeles for the Tenth Olympiad in 1932.
