A woman, a Chevrolet, and Founders Rock at the future site of the UCLA Westwood campus, Los Angeles, 1926

A woman, a Chevrolet, and Founders Rock at the future site of the UCLA Westwood campus, Los Angeles, 1926It’s unusual to find a photo of Los Angeles—even a vintage one—with only one person and no buildings in it, so this is a rare gem. The woman and her Chevrolet are admiring what will come to be known as Founders Rock, which was a boulder set into place in 1926 to mark the dedication of the University of California Los Angeles’s Westwood campus. Yes, that’s right, all that vast empty countryside is now the sprawling campus of UCLA. Founders Rock was intended to be a major gathering spot for campus activities, but I don’t think the idea caught on.

  1. The rock now lays on it’s side on Campus. Intentionally done be kinda looks sad compared to how majestic it looks in this image.
