This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of California that you might want to check out.

The latest installment of Multi-Map Monday.

Two pretty handsome and intersting maps of what is called "the Southland" by locals without any apparent irony. I only wish that I could find these in better quality. If you have one you must share it with me; I'll be very grateful.

This map was financed by the Pacific Southwest Trust and Savings Bank which later became the Security First National Bank, which then merged with Farmers and Merchants Bank of Los Angeles, which merged in 1956 with Security National Bank. After acquiring Pacific National Bank in 1967, they became Security Pacific National Bank. Then they were bought by Bank of America in 1992.

And that, kids, is why banks suck now and don't make cool maps.
