Travel Tuesday - Historic Santa Monica

I am continuing to prep for upcoming meetings in Los Angeles. The image below is from the bottom left corner of a map of Los Angeles by E.F. Hill from 1928 (see full image from the David Rumsey Map Collection). It's nice to see our street in Santa Monica on the map.

I looked back at an earlier map from 1906 available on the Santa Monica Public Library's digital collection. Our street was still very residential as early as 1906.

The Santa Monica Public Library has a great digital collection. Here is a sampling from the architectural sketchings for the restoration of the Santa Monica Pier:
