Fine separately published pocket map Los Angeles, published for the Bretheren Annual Conference in Los Angeles in 1905.
The map illustrates the lines of the 4 major Los Angeles Railway Companies:
- Pacific Electric Railway (red)
- Los Angeles Railway (yellow)
- Los Angeles Interurban Railway (green)
- Los Angeles Pacific Railway (black)
The map illustrates the dominant lines within the city of Los Angeles at the height of the first railway boom, prior to the Great Merger of 1910.
The map is also noteworthy as being the product of Laura L. Whitlock, who would become known as "the official mapmaker of Los Angeles County" during the teens and "the only woman map publisher in the country" at that point.
Folding map with original covers. Minor loss at left in the index.
