East of Alameda in 1909


This map was created for Melissa Richardson Banks for the 2011 Bloomfest, an annual art fair in celebration of Joel Bloom. The base map is from the Library of Congress "Los Angeles, 1909" by Birdseye View Publishers. References include local presses like the Los Angeles Herald and the Los Angeles Times, in addition to other books and references.

The Studio for Southern California History also illustrated the "Alpine Hill" section of this map (now known as Chinatown) and is available on the LA History Archive.
