Love is Living LARGE in Los Angeles

The map is a compilation of added images and entries. Its base is a 1932 map called “Greater Los Angeles: the wonder city of America” designed by K.M. Leuschner for Metropolitan Surveys and made available by the Library of Congress. The map inset in the lower right hand corner is also from the Library of Congress and is a 1909 “bird’s eye view” by Worthington Gates for Western Litho Co. Throughout this map are history entries and some hidden features for a scavenger hunt of icons related to Southern California.
