Santa Monica: A Look Back to 1902 from Today

On May 18th, the Santa Monica History Museum invites you to join us for our newest exhibit, “Santa Monica: A Look Back to 1902 from Today.

What did Santa Monica look like in 1902? As a child, local resident Michael Murphy found the answer in a Santa Monica Fire Department photography book of local buildings. As an adult, he painstakingly researched and documented each location’s appearance with the help of photographer Jens Lucking. This exhibit presents a series of then-and-now photographs comparing Santa Monica from 1902 to today.

The exhibit is a companion to Murphy’s book of the same title (released on May 14th, Arcadia Publishing). Join us in exploring how Santa Monica’s structures have changed over the last century!
