Presentation by Mark Rozelle: “Beside the LA River”

January 7 @ 2:00 pm

Presentation on the LA River by author Mark Rozelle

After author Mark Rozelle discovered his grandmother’s archives containing hundreds of photographs, documents, and ephemera, he spent over a decade researching the history of his family who lived on a 114-acre ranch along the Los Angeles River. Learn how the Rozelles overcame droughts, floods, earthquakes, and the Great Depression, as the river brought them both wealth and tribulation.

The talk is free and co-hosted by the Friends of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum and the Torrance Historical Society, with grant funding from the office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn. The event will be held in accordance with the COVID restrictions that will be in place during January 2021 and depending on protocols may be presented solely on a virtual platform. Please check back for updates.

Mr. Rozelle is the Author of “Beside the L.A. River”, available for purchase on Amazon.
