Time Capsule: Los Angeles Smog, 1954
On the heels of a major Los Angeles, California smog emergency in October 1954, Life magazine ran an article on the crisis in its November 1 issue. It was called “Blight on the Land of Sunshine,” and it showcased some rather surreal images of both the smog and the way L.A. citizens chose to deal with the smog. Here is a gallery of images — published and unpublished — that photographer Allan Grant captured for the article.
