Historic Maps of Los Angeles City (1849, 1908)

Two georeferenced images of historic maps of Los Angeles were downloaded from Earthworks, as posted by SoCalGIS.  Since they were georeferenced I thought they might be of interest.

Many thanks to Harvard University Library for scanning and georeferencing these maps.
