Description

From the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County description plaque: “Los Angeles planners wanted to visualize the city center to improve roads, bridges, tunnels, and other public works. Sponsored by the Works Progress Administration, a team of City Planning Department model makers, draftsmen and architects surveyed downtown Los Angeles between 1938 and 1940 and built a model of which this is just a small part. Much has changed, but you can spot Union Station, City Hall and the old Plaza.”
