Marion Parks Photographs

Physical Description: 197 photographs
Abstract: Little information is known about the Marion Parks photographs. Descriptive titles were given based on identifiable Los Angeles landmarks, events and people. Most photographs are not dated, but appear to have been taken in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The majority of the Marion Parks photographs have a number stamped on them, which was used to establish an arrangement. When present, the number is indicated in the description.
