Whimsical promotional broadside map of Tarzana, California, published by Ranlee Publishing. The name of the artist at the bottom left is illegible.

The map focuses on the area south of the 101 Freeway, west of LIndley Avenue and east of Corbin, centered on Ventura Blvd.

Advertising is shown for dozens of small businesses, including Gelson's Market, PC Brokers (Business Computers, Software/Hardware) and Mort's Delicatessen (still in the same place). F.B. Waterbeds (since 1970) also appears.

A marvelous snapshot of Tarzana, just a few years after the filming of Fast Times at Ridgemont High lampooned the 1980s culture of the San Fernando Valley.
