When you think of Los Angeles, what do you picture?
The towering buildings which dot the downtown skyline? The glamour of Hollywood? The density of all the millions who now call this place home? Well, L.A. didn't always look like this.
A new KCET series called "Lost LA," created in partnership with the USC Libraries explores an era quite different from the city we now know— one filled with grizzly bears, when the L.A. river flowed year round.
Nathan Masters, an L.A. historian with the USC Libraries, hosts the show. He stopped by Take Two to talk about bringing to life some of the surprising stories he's uncovered in the archives.
