Oil Wells In the Los Angeles

Fine early map of part of Los Angeles, focusing on the Geological and Mineralogical Features of the the region.

The map shows a large portion of the City, extending from Vermont and Hoover in the west to the City Terrace area, including Elysian Park, Echo Park

The map legend notes:

  • Abandoned Wells
  • Oil Wells. o Wells drilled since 1896.

A nice example of this scarce map, which accompanied a report entitled Oil and Gas Yielding Formations of California, in the State Mining Mining Bureau's November 1900 Bulletin #19.
