Map of Echo Park… Old School

Don’t you just love maps?  I do.  I could study maps all day long.  Especially when you stumble upon an outstanding gem such as this one… A map of Echo Park from 1909!

Such a stylish map of Echo Park!  And all that green space!  Hard to imagine our Los Angeles like this… Take a gander at Angeleno Heights, the first suburb!
