Recollections and Reflections on Life in
West Los Angeles from the 1940s to the 1960s.
Americas Group Book Selections
Some early comments from readers of Westside Stories
"Easy to read and lovely pictures to feast your eyes on. Some surprises, too." BDKM
"The book will bring back a flood of memories." AD
Los Angeles at its heart has been the motion picture capital of the world from the time moviemakers flocked to a place that offered 330 days of brilliant sunshine a year. After World War II, the GIs who had trained in California or passed through on their way to the Pacific Theatre liked the weather-induced relaxed atmosphere and returned to live and start their families. That period from approximately 1944 to 1969 is at the heart of Westside Stories. This is not only a window on a particular era, but a peek into life in one corner of a world class city’s extraordinary development.
