I recently learned that the Los Angeles Police Department
has 940,000 negatives stored in anonymous warehouses throughout the city.
A HUGE project is under way to digitalize ALL the photographs.

Below is a small sampling of the photographs.
Hopefully, the new project will scan the LAPD negatives MUCH larger.
