Santa Monica College students have created videos that look back at the City's history.

The gambling ships of the Santa Monica Bay. The women of

World War II who made up nearly half the workforce of the Douglas Aircraft

Company in Santa Monica. The film industry’s extensive presence in Culver City.

These are just some of the fascinating bits  of

history of the Westside captured so well on video by Santa Monica College

students that are now available on SMC’s YouTube channel.

Written, shot, produced, and edited by SMC students in

Media 20, a history-communications interdisciplinary class (fall 2012), the

videos capture segments of the colorful history in the area.
