Wonder of wonders is this invention called the internets. Too much information, too little time. Newish blog Montecito Heights, Above the City links up to a fantastic set on Flickr of Ansel Adams photographs of old-timey Los Angeles before the invention of MySpace, the deathknell of our great society. These are rarely scene photos from Adams of LA during war time showing everyday life in the City for a spread in an issue of Fortune magazine from 1941. Ninety photos in all, all available via the Los Angeles Public Library.
