John Bengston is the author of several fantastic books that are loaded with detailed "then and now" photographs showcasing film locations in the downtown LA area used by some the giants of the silent film era. His talks and presentations are fascinating! He will be at the downtown Central Library this Saturday afternoon.
From the LAPL website..."Using archival photographs, vintage maps, and scores of then and now comparison photographs, author John Bengtson will lead a virtual tour across the lost-and-found neighborhoods of Bunker Hill, Court Hill, and the downtown Los Angeles Historic Core, as documented in the films of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd."
Best to all
