    In this video for the One Day in LA project, historian and tour guide Richard Schave (Esotouric) visits East Los Angeles to draw attention to the fact that there is presently no historic preservation ordinance in unincorporated Los Angeles County. Without such an ordinance, there is no way to protect and preserve landmarks like The Tamale, a 1920s-era programmatic Mexican restaurant shaped like a giant tamale. The Tamale was recently listed for sale as a tear-down, sparking significant community concern. Richard suggests to viewers that they find the unique and meaningful structures in their communities, learn about them, share them through social media and help protect them from the bulldozers that are tearing down bits of historic Los Angeles every day.
