After living in Los Angeles for over 30 years I thought I knew pretty much about the city. This book presents an excitement to the reader to learn more about the city. The collection of photographs and commentaries have been researched thoroughly. They Are presented in a chronological manner depicting the historic growth and expansion from historic archives and more. I was surprised at the extensive collection of maps and photographs in the book, some I have seen before but this is a great collection and to my mind is one of the best to date and properly represents the story of Los Angeles.
Great visuals, an excellent book for anyone who want to know about my city or wants to look through the eyes of the photographer and see the city grow.
Would recommend this to anyone.

A great book in a fantastic series showcasing the Worlds greatest cities, others in the series, London, Berlin, Paris are equally just as fantastic you've got to get the set, sit back and see the World through Taschen's eyes!
