John Grannis, son of LeRoy Grannis, takes us through the legendary photo archives of his father, John "Doc" Ball and Bob Johnson.
In this episode, we head to Hollywood, California to visit the official archive of LeRoy Grannis. The Grannis Archive is made up of over 100,000 original photographs including the collection of John "Doc" Ball. "Doc" documented the first generation of California surfers, including LeRoy Grannis, throughout the 1930s - 1940s. He is acknowledged to many as the first official surf photographer on earth.
