Exposition Park roses in full bloom
May 2, 1937: The original Times caption reported:
A profusion of blooms and fragrance awaits the rose lover in the beautiful and expansive sunken rose gardens of Exposition Park. The 15,000 bushes are bearing their blooms in the park’s 156 rosebeds.
A short story in The Times added:
There are thirteen new beds of roses in the park, including the recently developed Will Rogers rose, a deep, dark red flower. Between the rows of roses have been planted yellow African daisies. A border of blue violas with fourteen center-beds of variegated pansies complete the floral picture. All are in bloom.
This panorama was assembled from three separate prints. It was published on the bottom of the May 3, 1937, Los Angeles Times local news section front.
