Led by Resident Storytellers Steve Goldstein and Joe Walker, this Walking Tour explores Angelus Rosedale, one of Los Angeles' oldest resting places, built in 1884. In addition to many of the city's mayors, this cemetery is important to Los Angeles' African American communities as well as many others.


Steve Goldstein was born in Boston, Massachusetts, where he developed his love of cemeteries at a very early age. Moving to Southern California at the age of 18, he continued and studying and began his vast collection of photographs of the graves of what he calls "The Famous, the Infamous, and the Just Plain Dead" that make up his as-yet unpublished book, "Beneath Los Angeles." The collection has become a favorite website for many over the past eight years at www.BeneathLosAngeles.com and has led to Mr. Goldstein being frequently interviewed, including the Los Angeles Times, the Orange County Register, KABC AM Radio, NPR and many other media venues.

Joe Walker is a Crime Analyst with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and has been with the department since 1986. In that capacity, he has worked numerous patrol stations and special unit assignments, including Robbery and Homicide. In 1995-1996, he assisted best selling author James Ellroy, (L.A. Confidential, Black Dahlia). His most recent work was as a contributing writer to the five volume series, "Famous American Crimes and Trials" published in December, 2004 by Greenwood Publishers. Walker wrote about the 1942 "Sleepy Lagoon" murders in Los Angeles and the subsequent "Zoot Suit." Most recently, he is assisting the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in the 1957 case of Tommy Bowman.
