Oil Wells In the Los Angeles
Fine early map of part of Los Angeles, focusing on the Geological and Mineralogical Features of the region.
The map shows and area around Downtown Los Angeles and Elysian Park.
The map legend notes:
- New Wells
- Old Wells - prior to 1896
- Dip of exposed Strata
- Dip & Strike of Oil Sand
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.
