    :D another great thread, any more pic's?
     
  2. If your looking for vintage LA pics. do a search for Ansel Adams LA photos, yeah that Ansel Adams of Yosemite fame he took a bunch around LA in the 40's. If you just like old pics check the album on my profile there are some from the Valve Burners trip to the 1953 Bonneville races, some from Madera drags and around town too...

  8. Now go and look at any crowd and how many 500pound blimps are walking around? Society went and got fat, most every one on this whole thread are slightly built guys, fuggit I'm going to the gym tomorrow.........

    Its something that has always jumped out at me, maybe from Army service where a large guy is noticed? I know its wrong but I kinda miss a society where a fat person is something un-usual and stands out.
    You know if I try, I could get further OT, I bet I could, honest.......... sheesh.

    Back to old Hot Rods.

    Doc.

    Here you go Mazooma, add these to your "before" collection if you don't already have them:


    [​IMG]
    Aerial view of Glendale looking northwest towards Burbank and the Verdugo Mountains. The San Gabriel Mountains and the La Canada, La Crescenta area are in the background<WBR>. San Fernando Road curves to the left towards open fields. The Los Angeles River is in the bottom left. Photo dated: Nov. 10, 1927.


    [​IMG]
    A view of Beverly Hills taken from an airplane, looking south from over Tower Road. The sprawling buildings of the Beverly Hills Hotel can be seen in approximat<WBR>ely the center of the picture. 1924


    [​IMG]
    Photo taken from an airplane. The view is looking northwest from Preuss Road, between Pico Blvd and Wilshire Blvd. The lots are neatly divided and although dwellings and buildings are in abundance, there are still areas of undevelope<WBR>d land. 1926


    [​IMG]
    Panoramic view of Hollywood circa 1924, looking at a large estate in Spanish Colonial Revival style on a hill, with trees planted on it and a road leading up to the house.



    La Brea tar pits
    [​IMG]
    Seen from the air you have to look carefully at the foreground (across the road from the buildings) to see the pits among the trees and in the open fields. In the upper portion of the picture is a field of oil derricks.
