Event Details

"Scenes From Our Past" is a photography exhibit curated by the Palos Verdes Library District's Local History Center Archivist Monique Sugimoto and Local History Center volunteer, John Keller. The exhibit takes you on a tour of the west side of the Peninsula, starting from Malaga Cove going south through Rancho Palos Verdes.  The exhibit provides snippets of the Peninsula's rich history, including its agricultural days, development in the 1920s, and its use for military sites.  Through almost 100 years, these photos show the Peninsula's continuity and change.  

Thanks to John Keller for meticulously finding the locations and rephotography of the Palos Verdes military sites.
