[very nice copy, pretty much as-new with just the slightest bit of scuffing to rear cover]. Trade PB (B&W photographs) Fabulous compilation of images from L.A.'s seedy past, including (be warned) some pretty grisly crime-scene photos. "In a veritable barrage of photographs from the twenties to the fifties, [the book] documents the criminal misdeeds and blossoming cityscape that inspired writers and filmmakers to immortalize this most hard-bitten of metropolises. From venues as disparate as rought-and-tumble roadhouses in the middle of nowhere to urbane nightclubs catering the the Hollywood elite, a bizarre cast of characters haunt these pages. Crime lords and corrupt cops; seers, mystics, and kooks; two-bit chippies and penny-ante gumshoes, they're all here, rendered in sensational black-and-white. This fact-filled, illustrated history exposes the lurid truth about the City of the Angels as it really was back in the days of noir." A terrific book, that no true lover of L.A. should be without.
