Abstract:

Los Angeles was founded in 1781 as one of the two original Spanish pueblos in California. With statehood in 1851, the Anglo influx from the eastern United States began to create an American metropolis, but the city retained its diverse character in its architecture and its people. By 1945, the small town that had begun with 28 square miles in the late 19th century had grown to 450 square miles through almost 100 annexations. Businessmen constructed a downtown streetscape whose architecture elicited envy in other cities, hotels catered to visitors with such enthusiasm that guests eventually returned with ambitious schemes of their own, and the construction of an elaborate freeway system made Los Angeles a drive-in city.--From publisher description.
