5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Book, May 24, 2009
This book Hollywood to Honolulu was a present and I have found it to be a real delight. Through fascinating research the authors have rediscovered an entirely lost chapter in the development of Los Angeles and its port in the 20s and opened my eyes to the exciting story of LASSCO Line. In fact I had known very little about it before. The characters who sailed on these beautiful white liners between LA and Honolulu come to life in these pages. The book is a technically detailed and well illustrated tale of the ships built or commandeered into the LASSCO fleet and what happened to them subsequently. Indeed all this is thoroughly documented - with deck plans and photographs and an abundance of expert detail - but there is so much more revealed about this world of leisure travel and of Hollywood during its first great era. It is hard to put down once you start reading, the authors have obviously done wonderful detective work, they've found rare artifacts and photographs and personal stories. The result is a brilliantly crafted book which is a thrill for people like me who love the age of steamships, as well as to anyone who is interested in America and Hollywood rich history.
