    Hi;

    I am looking for some information on 2 photographs in your “History Lesson: Downtown LA” photo essay. The first is the one of the Los Angeles Theater in 1931 and the other is a night shot Broadway taken in 1959. I would like very much to use the photographs in a paper that I am writing for the Bringing Back Broadway Initiative. I would be more than happy to send you to the PDF when it is finished.

    Thank you,

    Who can I contact about getting an image off of this page? I am looking for the image of LA and the Staples Center from 2000. Please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you. Megan
