PhotoFriends.org is the site for the nonprofit organization that supports the Los Angeles Public Library's photograph collection, which is lovingly nurtured (and increasingly put on-line) by Carolyn Kozo Cole. The website has a selection of images from the collection and links to past exhibits, including "Local News: Tabloid Pictures from the Los Angeles Herald Express, 1936-1961" curated by Diane Keaton and "Play by Play: A Century of L.A. Sports Photography, 1889-1989" curated by David Davis of SoCal Sports Observed. Davis is on the group's board. The photo above of women making tortillas in a factory that was at 110 North Spring Street in the 1920s and 30s is part of a forthcoming project on industrial Los Angeles that needs some good volunteers.
