A seminal study of the architecture of Los Angeles in the decade when the city came of age. The built environment reflected the optimism of the time and the place, where streamlined public architecture, the freedom and mobility of homeowners, modernist work likes Neutra and Schindler combined in the glow of the Hollywood Dream Machine to create the fabric of Los Angeles.

A very readable account of private and public architecture in Thirties LA. This is an updated reprint of the first edition which appeared in 1975. That copy was produced as a rather annoying upright paperback, just two-thirds the width of this edition, which made it rather difficult to read and didn't do the photos any favors, they are mostly square or landscape and get a much better showing in this edition.

Gebhard and von Bretton clearly know their subject (and nicely, write with clarity and enthusiasm). The contents essentially divide architecture into three sections: Public; Commercial; Private. Each gets a long essay followed by comprehensive photo sections. I thought it was slightly unfortunate that the photos were not referenced into the text pages.

The book is basically a visual one with 225 photos, this includes a small number of house floor plans. I was impressed with the selection of images especially the number of exteriors in the Residential chapter but all these interesting photos are only printed in a 133 screen and on average paper (so four stars). Admittedly the book was published in 1985; if it was issued today I feel the print quality would be much better. Covering the same subject Thomas Hines monumental Architecture of the Sun: Los Angeles Modernism 1900-1970, has many of the same photos but the book is printed on a matt art paper and the images look first-class.

Despite the rather soft and grey look to the photos I think this is as good a survey of Los Angeles Thirties architecture as you'll find. Just avoid the first edition even if it is a bargain price.

When someone visits Los Angeles for the first time one notes many historical landmarks often associated with Los Angeles are gone, The Brown Derby restaurant, Ciros & Trocadeo Nightclubs, Pan Pacific Auditorium, and most recently the tragedy of the destruction of The Ambassador Hotel. This book is priceless as we can see Los Angeles in it's glory days of the 1930's and 40's before a tidal wave of baby boomers in the 1960's and 70's. In recent decades there have been mass arrivals of Latin American and Asian migrants and very rich Iranians after the overthrow of the Shah of Iran in 1979 in the 1980's. which have added a rich multinational flavor to the city but have added to the acute over-population problem. Large parts of Los Angeles seems dirty now due in large part of the speculative nature of the real estate market making it un necessary for land owners to keep building in good condition as they appreciate any way and too many cars in the city. Their exhaust fumes stick to the paint of buildings because there is not enough wind to blow the air out of the county until the Santa Ana winds come but it helps very little.
