Los Angeles: City of Cars – Exhibition Opening
Join Darryl Holter & Stephen Gee, authors of the newly published Driving Force: Automobiles and the New American City, 1900-1930 (Angel City Press), as we celebrate the opening of the exhibition “Los Angeles: City of Cars.” Featuring images from the Los Angeles Public Library’s historic photo collection, the exhibition explores how the legacy of the long-forgotten early pioneers of auto retailing came to define the City of Angels, and how their work continues to impact everyday life in Los Angeles.
