Map

Jo Mora’s map of Los Angeles

Thanks to Joel Myhre for passing this tidbit along about an interesting map of LA that you can own if you want!

Here’s a quick tidbit:

It’s a neat map, because there’s little drawings of historical events, modern landmarks, and even surfers and Will Rogers. The borders are crammed full of an illustrated history of L.A., like the founding of the city, the water wars and the bombing of the L.A. Times building. There’s USC and UCLA, of course, and the airport, tar pits, San Fernando Mission, Angels Flight, and the movie studios, but also weird stuff like a chinchilla farm that used to be near Inglewood? An inexplicable ostrich near Lincoln Heights? A lion farm near Alhambra? Really fun stuff to look at.
