Model of Downtown LA.
This is a model of downtown Los Angeles in the late 1930’s. It was a depression era WPA project to assist the city in urban renewal(they ended up clearing the upper left portion of the city(Bunker Hill) in the 50’s and 60’). The model was apparently much larger but parts were destroyed. This view is from the southwest, looking northeast; the streets in downtown LA are laid out in Spanish colonial style as opposed to the north/south axis you see in most American cities.
