SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Southern Californialand

This week’s Slide of the Week is the cover of my new book: Southern Californialand: Mid-Century Culture in Kodachrome, which has just been released. Wouldn’t you just love to hop in that 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz and be whisked away on a tour of Southern California in the 1940’s, 50’s, and 60’s? Well you can! With more than 170 spectacular images in living color, Southern Californialand shows “the land of plenty” as the locals saw it, through the lenses of their cameras back in the day.

Enjoy the stories and images of the Luer Quality Meat Rocket, Jalopy races, monorails, Disneyland’s House of the Future and Pacific Ocean Park. See the Vista Dunes Trailer Park in Indio, The Covina Bowl, Compton Drive-in Theater, Shriner’s Arabian Bazaar, fast food stands, Muscle Beach, Tiki parties, and Mayor Motor City Used Car Lot. You’ll even go behind the scenes of Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments.” And there’s a lot more too!
