From the Publisher. Architect Charles Moore’s (1925–93) classic is in turn knowledgeable, warm, witty, and slightly irreverent. Moore’s genius was his ability to tie the disparate built environments of Los Angeles into a coherent whole. We read with pleasure the miniature essays that comprise his entries on subjects as varied as Disneyland, Riverside's Mission Inn, the Gamble House, and downtown Los Angeles. While still a practical guide, Moore’s work approaches literature.
