New blog about LA's urban history

Southland is a new blog about urbanism and history in Los Angeles, a collaboration between Gizmodo and the USC Libraries. Editor Nathan Masters:

Why Los Angeles? Because L.A. is a place of lost landscapes and forgotten infrastructures. Because historical Los Angeles does not always equal the Los Angeles of Hollywood. Because L.A. as Subject represents a unique source of understanding the past, present, and future of Los Angeles and its influence on other world metropolises.
