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.
