Here's a few historical Los Angeles photo websites on the net:

Los Angeles Public Library photo search here.
Additionally, I received this email, and thought I would clarify:
This may be a dumb question........you were talking about the Tamale restaurant and used (sic) between hispanic and foods. I've seen this before and it's been quite a long time since english class.........please enlighten.
The caption didn't capitalize Hispanic like I would have, had I written it. So I used the Latin word for thus -- sic-- which indicates an unusual spelling exists in a quote.
Hope that helps.
