Boyle Heights Reception at Occidental College

From Malissa Strong, President of the Boyle Heights Historical Society...

The Boyle Heights Historical Society has been very fortunate to have formed a partnership with Occidental College Library over the last few months. We are showing a photography exhibit, Boyle Heights Images and Essays: 1850 to 1900 in the library gallery. The exhibit exposed students to the early and often unknown relationship between Boyle Heights and Occidental College.

To me this partnership benefits small heritage societies, such as ours, and large institutions alike.

Having said that, we would like to invite you to a reception for the exhibit:

Thursday, January 19th
5:30 to 7:00 pm
Occidental College Library
1600 Campus Road
Eagle Rock, CA 90041

RSVP to or phone 323-868-6719

Please enter campus at Alumni Avenue. Free parking is available in the lot to the right of the entrance near the Library Academic Commons. For directions to campus maps go to and click on directions. The library building is #5 on the map.

Please note, there will be someone to give you access to the rear entrance of the library.

We look forward to seeing you at the reception.

What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee,
The image can be seen at who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
