Los Angeles, California, 1894. Drawn & lithographed by B. W. Pierce.

The city of Los Angeles was founded in 1781 by Felipe de Neve, a Spanish governor. In 1821, after declaring independence from Spain, the city became a part of Mexico. Following the Mexican-American War, in 1848 the city became a part of the United States. Two years later, the city was incorporated. Experiencing frequent booms in population, it has grown to be the second largest city in the United States. This beautiful map provides a look back to the early days of the city. Complete reference list below.

The following text is included on the map:


Finding it impossible to properly illustrate the whole City, as seen from on direction, I found it necessary to make the view in two sections. The UPPER VIEW shows the City as seen from the Electric Power House, corner of Wilder St. and Central Ave. looking North. This section shows the business portion and is the main view. The LOWER VIEW shows all that part of the City not shown in the main view.

Electric Railways are indicated by the letter "E" at frequent intervals. Cable Roads by "C" and Horse Railways by "H".

Where names of streets could not be inserted, some sign as Δ , +, or O is placed in street and the sign and name are written in some open space near by.
