Scarce view map of Santa Monica, California, produced by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce in the middle of the 1950s.
The map faces north toward the Santa Monica Mountains, overlooking Los Angeles, approximately from Palos Verdes.
On the back of the map, the population of Santa Monica is given as 79,000, which dates between 1950 (71,595) and 1960 (83,249). Therefore, we have given it a circa date of 1955.
Maps and views of Santa Monica, even from the modern pictorial period, are scarce.
