Wonder City of the West

New, 5 comments

Hidden Los Angeles has dug up a 1935 short film by James A. Fitzpatrick called The Wonder City of the West all about how awesome our fair city is. Hear the narrator's enthusiastic declaration: "Wilshire Boulevard is a fine example of the many grand boulevards that reach out from the heart of Los Angeles like the arms of a gigantic octopus, embracing newer suburbs such as Pasadena and Hollywood, which have grown so rapidly that they too have become cities by their own right within the tremendous county of Los Angeles."
