The L.A. River is more than just a river. Shown here as documented by F.H Maude and Harry Vroman from the late 1800s to early 1900s, weโ€™re hosting a free discussion on the river and its watershed this Saturday at 11:00 a.m. #lahistory

"Los Angeles is where it all began, and where, for years, the main action was to be found. California wine meant Los Angeles wine. The whole California wine establishment descends directly from Los Angeles."
โ€”Thomas Pinney, The City of Vines: A History of Wine in Los Angeles
Before oil, before Hollywood, before aerospace, there was wine. Even before California became a state in 1850, Los Angeles was known for its wine-making, due initially in great part to the missionsโ€”particularly Mission San Gabrielโ€”established by the Franciscans.

Millerโ€™s 1931 model of Sonora Town, the first plaza area in Los Angeles, as it appeared in 1850

Guys I found out some crazy s%@t this week. These bungalows located in Echo Park were built by my great-grandfather Louis Wurfl back in 1922. The complex is known as "Wurfl Court," and back in May it was named a Historic-Cultural Monument by the LA City Council. !!!!!!!!!!

Tongva Indians lived on beautiful Catalina Island, using planked canoes (ti'at) to visit mainland relatives. "With each stroke, the sun sent shards of light glancing off water-beaded paddles." #tongvaindians #southerncalifornia #historicalfiction #lariver #lahistory #lawatershed #sangabrielmission #amazon #shoponline #catalinaisland

Since we've been talking amusement parks for this month, why not revisit an older episode where we also talked about one specific amusement park: the old Venice Pier amusement park.
Give our old episode "Under the (venice) Boardwalk...(Venice) Boardwalk" another listen because we apparently can't stop talking about amusement parks. Check the link in our bio.

For our #waybackwednesday we are featuring a powerful female figure in Southern California history, Ysabel Varela de Valle, and her her work to care for orphans. "Ysabel Varela (1837โ€“1905) was only fifteen years old when she married Ignacio del Valle, a man nearly thirty years her senior. She and her new husband lived at El Pueblo, among other elite Californio families, in an adobe facing the plaza. As there was no child welfare system at that time, orphaned children were left to roam the streets. So while Ignacio was busy with his work as an elected official, Ysabel ministered to the poor and homeless in the area. In 1861, Ysabel, Ignacio, and their young children moved to Rancho Camulos, a property Ignacio had inherited. Continuing her commitment to children, Ysabel brought eight orphans with her to be raised in her family. According to some accounts, she periodically brought more children to the ranch. ...... When Ysabel del Valleโ€™s funeral procession passed the Los Angeles Orphan Asylum in Boyle Heights orphanage on its way to the cemetery, three hundred children stood outside to say goodbye to the woman whose work among the homeless was legendary." Citation: Portrait of the Del Valle family, Rancho Camulos, ca. 1888

Found this while city wandering today.
Just off the LA River, this marks the campground site of the first Spanish explorers (1769) in what would eventually become the City of Los Angeles.
Just a tiny monument, on a tiny scrap of dirt, with global implications.
Presented in 1969 by the Society of Colonial Wars.
Amazing what you find when you really stop and look.

Documenting | I'm back in the #saddle, sort of, #documenting the 36 year history of the #BlackDollExhi for the #CityofLosAngeles and the #williamgrantstillartscenter. Today I'm in #leimertpark at the #visiontheatre #photographing the beautiful #collection of #jamesburke. These two dolls are male and female #medicine #doctors. Mr Burke is not sure when they were in the show or who the #dollmaker is. In any case, they are incredible and having the opportunity to #photograph them is an honor. #MyLifeThroughMyLens #documentingllife #documentarian #photographer #documentingLA #documentingphotographer #Blackdolls #LAHistory #blackhistory

The pedestrian bridge to Universal Studios before and after construction. It was much easier to cross in the after version. But not as thrilling.

On a random Culver City street corner, is this cool Art Deco mosaic (circa 1920's). LA is rich with historical treasures like this! I โ™ฅ๏ธLA!!

Tower Records on Sunset was one of the first places I visited when I first arrived in LA. I was staying with my uncle and I walked all the way there from Beechwood Canyon, spent a fortune and walked all the way back. #lalife #lahistory #sunsetstrip #towerrecords #libbylavella #music #nostalgia
