Why a site on Westchester, CA, a little suburban spot between Marina Del Rey and Los Angeles International Airport? And why is it from a more personal perspective like myself!? First off, there isn't any serious historical groups out there, much less a site with more than one picture, that is, if not preserving, showing off some interesting history of this small Los Angles suburb.
Sure, there is this Westchester/Plata Del Rey Historical Society/Club/whatever deal, but the last time I tried to contact them, nobody was home. I even visited their offices at LMU but nobody was there. Doubt that they have that office anymore.
So, I decided to tackle the minefield of internet web design and slap one together.
One thing that should be noted about this hole-in-the-wall is that, obviously, it's not an 'official' nor a 'general' site at all. This is a more personal tribute to this suburb that I spent a good chunk of my impressionable days, circa 1979-1981. So don't expect anything like the some real estate corporate sponsored version of local history trying to sell ya something nor the History Channel, this'll be more of 'I Love The 70's' and VH-1's latest notsalgic mini-series mixed together with too much shmultz and self-references galore.
Good Luck and dig in,
