Post-War Long Beach

An informative map of the Long Beach area produced in the early 1950s.

This map offers a glance into the infrastructure and development of the city by illustrating neighborhoods of the area like Long Beach, Torrance, and part of Redondo Beach. These areas are shown with many roads and their classification (Heavy, medium, or light duty and unimproved) as well as the locations of newly built interstates and freeways.

Similar signs of progress are illustrated in the city like hospitals, factories, rail lines, and radio stations. There is also a nice representation of the oil fields and harbor that contribute to the economy of the area.
