Los Angeles used to be a fun, colorful place full of joy and wonder but today it's a drab wasteland full of overpriced stores and very few miniature railways. Tooootally kidding, but these comparisons between vintage postcards of LA and the same scenes today are a little bit of a bummer—slide to see Venice get less whimsical or the Beverly Hills Brown Derby make way for Louis Vuitton. All the images come from the ScenePast: Americana Road Trip app, which is full of just these kinds of restored old postcards and their modern-day equivalents (the ScenePast people last brought us before-and-afters of famous LA filming locations). Enjoy/lament!
