Description

Rare Japanese language map of Los Angeles's Little Tokyo, published by Pacific Printing for the Olympic Hotel.

The front of the map features a detailed map of the Little Tokyo district. The map is oriented to the west and centered on the intersection of San Pedro Street and East 9th Ave. Above the map proper is an illustration of the grand Olympic Hotel, then the best Japanese-focused hotel in Los Angeles. The map is further surrounded by advertisements for Japanese owned business in the area, many of which are also noted on the map.

On the verso there is a map of Southern California, with more advertisements.
