Los Angeles Magazine Covers Online (LAObserved.com)

Anyone who loves entertainment history will appreciate this item from LAObserved.com


50+ years of Los Angeles Magazine covers now online
4:37 PM Thursday December 16 This is cool. The magazine has been celebrating its 50-year anniversary and has now put up an image of 600+ issues, back to its origins under various names in 1958. It's amazing how many years in a row featured a celebrity woman on every cover, most of them actresses. I liked this one from November, 1963, when the topic of the time was the future of Downtown — before Bunker Hill was finally scraped clean of Angeleno life and the office towers were erected, creating a separate second Downtown. The cover asks: "Is downtown worth saving?" Also prescient: "the coming crisis in local TV." Click the cover to see it bigger. Cover archive
