Miracle Mile in Los Angeles (eBook)

by (Author)

  • 35,384 Words

The world-famous Miracle Mile in Los Angeles was
shaped into a great commercial and cultural district by the city’s tremendous
urban expansion in the early twentieth century. Its origins along Wilshire
Boulevard are directly related to the twin LA booms in auto travel and real
estate ventures. Once the home of such famous stores as the May Company,
Silverwood’s, Coulter’s and Desmond’s, as well as Streamline Moderne and Art
Deco architecture, Miracle Mile has boasted the La Brea Tar Pits and Farmer’s
Market, Gilmore Field and CBS Television City, as well as Pan Pacific Park and
Museum Row. Join author Ruth Wallach, head of the University of Southern
California’s Architecture and Fine Arts Library, for this tour through the most
emblematic neighborhood of twentieth-century Los Angeles development.
