Title Insurance and Chamber of Commerce Photos

Here's a free event for vintage photo buffs: On Saturday, July 21, at 2 pm in the Doheny Library of USC, the California Historical Society and the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce present . . .

. . . a special viewing of some of the unique old pictures like the one at right--which was taken in front of a bicycle shop in Monrovia in 1887. Are the ladies not daring and stylish? And the men--could you not write volumes about them?

The pictures are from the 20,000 separate photos in the collections of both the Chamber of Commerce and  Title Insurance and Trust Company.

Although the event (a reception, as well as viewing) is free, they ask folks to make reservations. Go to the event link above.
