If the Los Angeles of the 40s and 50s (back when it was pronounced Los ANGLE-ess) sparks your imagination, the above will bring you 14 minutes of sheer bliss.

I’m guessing the footage was made to serve as plates for backscreen projections in movies. Now over time, it has become a precious and magical evocation of bygone times.

  1. Interesting stuff, thanks for the sharing. This is probably 1946, since the films in the theaters are “Gilda” with Rita Hayworth and “The Outlaw” with Jane Russell (apparently during its controversial re-release). I love the cars, too — it looks like there are a lot of older models.

    • Thanks for the info on the date, and thanks for your kind review of my book on your blog!
