Notice how steep Bunker Hill used to be!


I stumbled across a copy of “Los Angeles: A Guide Book,” produced for the 1907 National Education Assn. convention, listed on EBay for $9.99 and remembered that I had seen a digitized copy on Google books.   The book offers brief snapshots of the city as it was a century ago and because it was produced for teachers it focuses on educational facilities and is loaded with facts for tourists.  

There’s also a handy map of downtown as it was in 1907. You can download the pdf here.
