Western Heights Oral Histories
[As part of the remit to make the Untold LA iPad Book available to as many people as possible I'll be posting photos from the book in sequential order on a regular basis until it is completely online.]

There are 6 more oral history audio clips in the Western Heights Chapter - I'll be posting them in the coming days.
