Nov. 8, 1931, Model of Los Angeles

Nov. 8, 1931: For its 50th anniversary, The Times re-creates Los Angeles as it was in 1881. Above, Robert H. Sexton Jr. displays an elaborate model of the city in 1881, measuring about 8 feet by 5 feet. The model was put on exhibit at the Los Angeles Public Library and was to be available to schools and colleges for educational purposes. I wonder what became of it.
