Boyle Heights has been a gateway neighborhood for people from all over the world. Latino Americans, Jewish Americans, Japanese Americas, Italian Americans, Russian Americans, and more got their start in this country on the eastern banks of the L.A. River. Here are a few of their faces, from the 1920’s to 1950’s.

laemonade asked: Hello! Do you by any chance know if it's too late to book a tour around the linda vista hospital?!
From what I have gathered, yes it is too late. They have already begun reconstruction on the new project.
Anonymous asked: hello my name is ernesto gonzalez. i am a student at east los angeles college and i would like to use some of your pictures for one of my projects. the project is for my architecture rendering class. the project consists of a mixed-media hybrid drawing of one of our previous architectural design projects. the project i chose was a hypothetical museum located in the lot across from the mariachi hotel at mariachi plaza. may i use a few of the photographs from this tumblr?
I do not take credit for the photos I post. Many of the images have click through links which will take you to the respected owner’s site. I personally would not list this tumblr as an actual source. This is just a photo appreciation blog. That being said, yes you can use the images but we are not a legit source.
