The Little Tokyo Historical Society will be holding a “Community Photo Collection Weekend” on Saturday, May 31, at Union Church Los Angeles, 401 E. Third St., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, June 1, at Far East Lounge, 353 E. First St., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Take a look through your photo albums, closets, boxes, attic, basement, garage, office, etc. for pictures and documents of Little Tokyo of any era. Your important photos and their stories will be digitally preserved and added to LTHS’ archival collection for permanent preservation for scholarly research purposes and may be used in future LTHS publications.
This LTHS activity is just but one commemorating the 130th anniversary of Little Tokyo with special programming throughout the year.
