Hear about the LAPL Ansel Adams photos

ansel-ocean-park-pier.jpgI've mentioned several times the small collection of photos from 1940 Los Angeles and environs that Ansel Adams donated to the Los Angeles Public Library. They were exhibited for the first time last year at Downtown's drkrm gallery, showing scenes of the old Court Street incline railway downtown, the Lockheed and Douglas aircraft plants, store fronts on Sunset and San Vicente and Wilshire, and this group above on the pier at Ocean Park. (Plus much more.) Prints were exhibited last year at the drkrm gallery in Downtown, and today at 2 p.m. Richard Stanley will discuss the images at the Central Library. Photo librarian Christina Rice will also introduce the LAPL photo collection, one of the city's real treasures.

It's not in the usual location for these Central Library photo talks, so go here for information.
