Los Angeles is rich with landmarks of times gone by. From historic hotels to architectural works like the 121-year-old Bradbury Building, the city brims with echoes of the past. And with two other benchmarks of historical significance a bit farther afield - the port town of San Pedro to the south and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum in Simi Valley to the north - visiting history buffs are certain to find plenty of fodder for their passion.
