Another Good Story Ruined -- Saucers Over L.A.!

  Feb. 26, 1942, Battle of L.A.  
  Los Angeles Times file photo  

I have been working with The Times’ historic photos for years and I know how the newspaper’s art department used to retouch pictures, so the moment I saw this image last week while doing the “Battle: Los Angeles” post I knew it had been heavily retouched.

My first question was whether we still had the original print.

We do, but it took a few days to get it. 

I’ll be writing more about the picture next week.
