Detailed folding map of part of Los Angeles, extending from Santa Monica to the Doheny Estate and Baldwin Hills.

The map includes a number of recently constructed landmarks, including the Riviera Country Club, Fox Studio, University of California, Santa Monica Municipal Airport, Occidental College Site and 5 piers (Municipal Pier, Crystal Pier, Ocean Park Pier, Venice Pier and an unnamed pier south of the Venice Pier).

The Venice Oil Field is shown on the Road to Redondo Beach. The Fox HIlls Country Club, California Country Club, Rancho Country Club, HIllcrest Country Club, Los Angeles Country Club, Westwood Public Golf Course, Brentwood Country Club, L.A. A.C. Golf Course and Bel Air Country Club are also shown. The Uplifters Club is also shown.

As noted in a June 28, 1994 article by Ron Russell in the Los Angeles Times:

In 1913, the grandfather of Watergate figure H.R. (Bob) Haldeman became the driving force behind an influential band of revelers known as the Uplifters Club. Its members bought part of a canyon in Pacific Palisades, christened it Uplifters Ranch and built secluded getaways around an elaborate clubhouse.

Nearly half a century after the exclusive men's club was dissolved, its legacy is a dreamscape, an odd assortment of three dozen fanciful cottages and lodges tucked in a remote canyon near Will Rogers State Historic Park. . . .

The war, growing debts and shifting social attitudes led to the club's demise in 1947, closing the book on a playground of the privileged, where the right crowd could play polo with Walt Disney and Daryl F. Zanuck or swap yarns with Harold Lloyd and Busby Berkeley.

Today, the ranch remains a haven for writers, actors and others.

Aldous Huxley lived and wrote there for a time. Earl Warren spent his summers there. At different times, Meryl Streep and Wilt Chamberlain rented the same shingled cottage.
