Photograph of a birdseye view of Los Angeles looking northeast from the City Hall tower, ca.1931. There is heavy traffic on a wide street in the middle of the image; most of the other visible streets have fairly light traffic. The part of the city that is visible features many densely placed shops and other buildings, as well as a fair number of trees, especially in the lower left corner. In the background is a line of mountains, bare except for trees along the ridgeline. Legible signs include, from left, "Brunswig Drug Co. Wholesale Dr[uggists]", and "The Braun Co[mpany] Laboratory Outfits Mine Mill and Smelt Supplies".
