Striking pictorial map of Southern California, appearing on the verso of the menu for the Ollie Hammond's Steak House in Los Angeles, Feb 2, 1946.

The map provides a striking birdseye view of Los Angeles and surrounding areas, along with the location of their three restaurants at Beverly Hills at No. La Cienega ... Town and Country at Third and Fairfax ... and Los Angeles at 3683 Wilshire. The map extends to San Bernardino, the Mojave Desert, Long Beach and Santa Barbara, with Boulder Dam, Mt. Whitney, Death Valley Sequoia National Park and Yosemite named on the horizon.

The map is a wonderful and shows some local highlights like the La Brea Tar Pits, Signal Hill Oil Field, LA Coliseum, Santa Monica, Ocean Park, Venice and more Piers with their Amusements, Santa Anita Race Track and shows Barstow, Las Vegas, Boulder Dam, Death Valley, Yosemite, Mariposa Grove and other places way off in the distance.
