60: Stephen Gee - Iconic Vision
It’s a big week for our guest today. After nearly ten years of research and dedication, his documentary – ‘Iconic Vision - John Parkinson, Architect of Los Angeles’ premiered on PBS and tells the story of a Brit who created over 400 of Los Angeles’ most iconic structures, including City Hall, The Coliseum, Union Station and Bullocks Wilshire. The son of an English mill worker, John Parkinson arrived in North America in 1883 with a toolbox and $5. When he died in 1935, he had inspired over $100,000,000 in construction projects in LA alone.
