Pico Boulevard: Main Street Los Angeles Through Time

This book is a photographic essay on the history of Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles, highlighting continuity and changes from the late nineteenth century into the twenty-first through the prism of the street’s architectural legacy.

Pico Boulevard is one of the major east-west boulevards running through Los Angeles, and traverses industrial, urban, and commercial areas serving among the most culturally, demographically, and economically diverse neighborhoods.

It is an example of the many Main Street-style boulevards in the city, mixing mom-and-pop business establishments that cater to local and immigrant communities with large commercial enterprises.

As the urban fabric and transportation infrastructure in Los Angeles undergo major changes, so is Pico Boulevard, which is becoming prime frontage for new commercial, multi-family and mixed-use redevelopment.
