West Adams Boulevard
[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.]
The iPad Book is broken up into 11 main chapters, with each chapter focusing on a different neighborhood in the West Adams District. On Page 154 we do something a little bit different - instead of staying in one neighborhood we 'drive down' West Adams Boulevard from East to West; with each page looking on a house along the way.
In the iBook each Chapter Heading page contains a photo from the neighborhood, an interactive map that shows you where in West Adams the neighborhood is, links to relevant sites and a video, between 5 and 20 minutes long, where I talk about my reasons for shooting the neighborhood and give background information about the history of the homes and area.
From the Chapter Introduction: "Where the West Adams District takes its name, West Adams Boulevard was the desired street to have a home on in the Los Angeles of the 1880's."
In the screen grab below from the Chapter Heading you can see West Adams as it was, portrayed in a postcard ; you can watch the Chapter Video Introduction above.
