One Response to Seeing L.A. Through the Lens of History – C.C. Pierce’s Photos

    Saw them yesterday. Thanks so much Larry and the LA Times! Really, really great stuff! The pictures are so mosaic like. The vision of the people and the photographer really put Bunker Hill into much better context for me. For the many years before these photos, Bunker Hill seemed so removed from the rest of Southern California.

    The photos show how unique and interesting the LA area really was from the git-go, how the people saw the land and used the natural features, and gives me a lot of insight into the pioneering spirit of the many forgotten people who settled here. And the photographer who saw and understood so much… Thanks again Larry and the LA Times!
