Rotogravure Sunday

During the 1920’s, Touring Topics published a special Rotogravure section that featured some remarkable photographs of Southern California and the West, taken by some remarkably talented photographers. These beautiful pictures captured a glimpse of California as it was during one of the most significant periods of its development. As I have recently acquired a large cache of these rotogravure sections I thought I’d share them as part of a regular Rotogravure Sunday. Enjoy!

    Love the Oasis of Mara and Malibu Canyon photos. Really beautiful. I never thought of Malibu as being rugged terrain. (Guess I’ve been watching too much “Two and a Half Men”.)
