Hometown: Los Angeles
November 2, 2012
I would love to see old photographs when Los Angeles was just open land for miles; the streets unpaved with olive, orange, almond & other trees the only landscaping all the way to the ocean; the era when my ancestors began their history here!
The historical information was amazing! I discovered more about the Italian migration and community in Los Angeles than I had ever imagined. I am looking forward to the opening of the Italian American Museum---and discovering about more abut my family's roots in Los Angeles. The presenter, while seemingly well-versed in the subject, needed to be more familiar with her presentation material as she read the entire thing and stumbled 'uming' and 'ahhing' throughout. It was quite distracting and interrupted the flow. Or possibly she was unaccustomed to such a large audience?
