The images above and below are from a 1930’s map for children, via the wonderful Big Map Blog. It gives some nice insights into the major sights and marvels of “the wonder city” according to graphic artist, K M Leuschner in 1932. Heavy on country clubs, luxury hotels, school and institutions, this map seems to be a Hancock Park centric view of upper middle class landmarks of early 30’s LA. More info is definitely needed about the “nude sun baths” of Santa Monica.
