"When Los Angeles was a rustic village"

That's the title of a photo essay in the Telegraph, featuring images dating back to the 19th century.  Here are a couple of them to whet your appetite.

Visitors to Santa Monica Beach in the 1880's

San Fernando Valley in the 1890's

Looks a bit different today, doesn't it?  There are many more images at the link.  Interesting viewing for history buffs.
