Description

Detailed map of downtown Los Angeles in 1924, featuring building-level detail and an extensive enumeration of businesses in the area.

The map is roughly bounded by Figueroa on the west, Wall Street on the east, First Street in the north, and Twelfth in the south. Pershing Square is at the center of the map.

This example was issued as a promotion for Mullen & Bluett men's clothing department store, which is highlighted in red on the map. The only other example that we have seen (at the Los Angeles Public Library) was also made for Mullen & Bluett.

Interestingly, the map shows the footprint of the Los Angeles Central Library, which was built in 1926.
