Long Beach Architecture--November 20

The Long Beach Historical Society hosts a panel discussing the "Past, Present, and Future of Development and Architecture of Long Beach" on November 20 at 6 pm.

Where? Good question. Their announcement doesn't say and their website is seriously out of date (appropriate for a historical society, I guess). The website does have some cool pictures, though, like the one at right.

Their phone number is 562-424-2220. It sounds like a fascinating panel, with people from the LBHS, city representatives (including the Historic Preservation Officer), and local architect Jon Glasgow.

But jeez, guys. Who-what-when-where-how!

Hey, if you are promoting historical events about Long Beach, I have just written a book on Isaias Hellman, who co-founded LA's first successful bank, the Farmers and Merchants Bank, and was incredibly important in the development of California. He was also co-owner of Rancho Los Alamitos (now Long Beach), the donor of land to start USC, the largest shareholder in LA's water company and much more. I will be discussing my book, Towers of Gold: How One Jewish Immigrant Named Isaias Hellman Created California, at the adobe at Rancho Alamitos on Saturday Nov. 22 at 10 am. I will also be at the Huntington Library at 7:30 pm on Friday Nov. 21.
