Los Angeles photo archive

UCLA has recently launched an archive of news photographs taken from the Los Angeles Times and the Los Angeles Daily News. Of the 5,124 high res images in this database, the oldest dates from 1914. One fun way to search the archive is by entering a year, say "1927," and then browse by date. Other valuable keywords or search terms are "motion picture" and "silent film." Nothing turned up under "Louise Brooks," though I did come across rarely seen images of Clara Bow, Lina Basquette, Gloria Swanson, Mary Pickford, etc.... It's well worth checking out.
