Old Congestion Map of Los Angeles, 1920 - Rare Automobile Traffic Guide of Downtown LA
Dispatches in 1-2 days
Handmade to order
This is one of the world's first maps for motorists. The legend in the bottom left corner shows you a key of the information available on this map, including parking restrictions, when and where left turns are allowed, and the "congested district" where parking is prohibited during busy hours.
All in all, a fascinating early look at downtown Los Angeles.
Please note that the 24x24 inch map has white edges. They are very easy to snip off with scissors. Or if you are planning to frame your map, these borders will help you with framing. All other sizes, including all framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.
The model in the listing images is holding the 16x16 inch (40x40cm) version of the map.
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Los Angeles, who lives there now, or perhaps someone who has worked or travelled there and knows about the LA congestion all too well...
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes the map pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
