Description

Rare pictorial map of the Toluca Lake area, published by the Lakeside Golf Club Map Committee in 1936.

The map includes a fine image of the golf course and the adjoining homes of its remarkable group of owners, including the map maker, Park French, who was the original Toluca Lake architect, as well as the Art Director for a number of famous Hollywood movies in the 1920s.

Other interesting Toluca Lake resident names include Amelia Earhart and Roy Disney. The map is ringed with additional names of famous entertainers, athletes, business leaders, and others, whom we assume were members of the club.

The Bing Crosby estate is pictured top left.  

The map is interspersed with historical vignettes telling the story of the region and early history of Toluca Lake and the golf club.
