Photo Submission

Foto East LA, a community history project of the County of Los Angeles Public Library, is collecting images that capture the community’s rich history before 1980. We seek images of everyday life in East LA.

  • Images of everyday life: Birthdays, family celebrations, local shops, schools and public transportation.
  • Places: Buildings that have stayed the same, changed or no longer exist; street scenes from the past; and local landmarks.
  • Activities: Performances, parades, protests, cultural events and everything in between.
  • People: Neighborhood VIP’s, prominent local families, clubs and organizations, and public figures visiting East LA.

Submit up to two images at a time using this form. If you have more to share, please fill out the form again, or contact us to discuss.

We prefer at least 300 dpi scanning resolution. We accept JPG images at this time (maximum size: 10 MB)

If you don’t have access to a scanner, contact us to arrange an appointment.
