An Awesome Vintage Book on the famous Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA

I wanted to share a gift I got back in December for Christmas this year. This book tells a fabulous story of Los Angeles' grandest avenue..

The Book is titled: 

Wilshire Boulevard: Grand Concourse of Los Angeles and is available on Amazon for under 20$, so if you are a history buff or a vintage architecture buff ( I am a little bit of both) then this book is perfect!!


Here is another Look at the book: from Amazon:
