125 YEARS / LOST

Vanishing points

April 30, 2006

Los Angeles is famously a city of today and tomorrow. Even though preservationists have been busy since 1894, the city tends to let go of its past.

Progress leaves little room for nostalgia, and often we don't know what's been lost until we stumble upon an old photograph.
