Welcome To Our Old House. Feel Free To Poke Around.

On March 13, 2006, 1947project completed its mission to spend one year documenting the offbeat and criminal history of 1947 Los Angeles. You’ve found our archive site.

Today you’ll find us exploring 1927 at 1947project.com, where we previously spent a year immersed in 1907. Please stop by for all your early Los Angeles history needs.

yours sincerely,
the history fiends of 1947project
