Album, compiled by G.W. Hazard, containing 989 photographs of early Los Angeles and surrounding cities.
Hazard began compiling his extensive collection of photographs of historical persons and places relating to the history of
Los Angeles in the 1880s, which he planned to use in writing his "History of Los Angeles and vicinity." When Hazard died in
1914, Verne Dyson, a writer for the Los Angeles Times and manager of the Pasadena News Bureau, purchased the collection from
the Hazard family. Dyson continued to add to the collection, with the intention of finishing and producing Hazard's work.
Although Dyson did complete a manuscript (now in the Verne Dyson Papers, 1914-1962 (Collection 804) in Library Special Collections), and issued a 30-p. prospectus for the work in 1914, it was never published.
