This book has compiled LA Times news coverage of the city of Los Angeles, starting in 1881 and going all the way up to the present day.

Famed for being the home of Hollywood; Los Angeles, or ‘Tinseltown’ as it is commonly referred to, is one of the most well-known cities across the globe. It is the largest city on the West Coast of the United States and the second most populous city in the country, after New York. With the significant impact that LA has had on popular culture, it is only natural that the city carries a fair weight of history. The LA Times has of course been there to cover every momentous occasion in the past 140 years, and these articles have been woven together to form this stunning, coffee-table-sized book.

The book begins in 1881, with the front page of the very first edition of the Los Angeles Daily Times, a moment of history in itself. Coverage continues with reports of the glitz and glamour – including the opening of the United Artists’ Theater in 1927 and Disneyland in 1955; but also of the darker moments; including the murders of Bugsy Siegel and Sharon Tate. LA’s sporting triumphs are also featured, including the 2022 Super Bowl win for the LA Rams and the 2020 World Series win for the Dodgers.

The truth is, the city of Los Angeles has too much history to fit into one book. But at 176 pages, this LA Times book does a fantastic job of giving you all the best news and chronicles of a city that always has a story to tell.
