Best-selling author, historian and performance artist Charles Phoenix follows up his remarkable hit book Southern California in the '50s with an even more remarkable Kodachrome study of the world that existed between Santa Barbara and San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s. His retro slide tour takes readers to places they never dreamed existed, and our guide tags along with amateur photographers who snapped the best of Southern California.
From the Publisher:
Phoenix presents the colorful region as the locals saw it through the lens of their cameras in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s--more than 170 images printed from the best of Phoenix's collection of other people's old slides. He takes us into the living rooms and backyards of real people, and travels with them uptown and downtown, visiting the famous attractions along the way. He shows the lifestyle and landscape from Santa Barbara to San Diego, from the desert to the sea, filled with futurism, escapism, the unconventional and the hauntingly normal.--From publisher description.
