Photograph of an aerial view of Los Angeles, showing the intersection of Broadway and Spring Street, 1940. The two large streets intersect in the foreground at left. The Los Angeles River can be seen winding its way from the foreground to the background at left near the base of a tall hill. At right, the land is flat and covered by hundreds of small buildings. In the background, a mountain range is faintly visible through thick haze. Photoprint reads: "This photograph is loaned to you. Please return to: Illustrator. L.A. City Planning Dept.
