The Man Who Built Los Angeles - John Parkinson - Finally Gets a Book Written About Him

Anyone interested in either Los Angeles - or architecture -  and particularly Downtown Los Angeles architecture - should be excited to know that there is finally a book about the life and career of LA's leading architect of the first third of the last century - John Parkinson; the one architect who most helped shape LA when it first became a major city. Above is a postcard of his Braly Building - now the Continental- at 4th & Spring.  And here is the story on today's Sunday LA Times.

And here is a link to where you can buy the book ...

Iconic Vision:
John Parkinson, Architect of Los Angeles
