Photograph of an aerial view of Los Angeles looking south along Silver Lake Boulevard, 1940. The Los Angeles River runs across the image in the background, while San Fernando Road can be seen in the foreground. A large building, possibly a school, can be seen near an open field at left. Hundreds of small houses can be seen neatly arranged around a grid of narrow paved streets. Automobiles are visible on many of the streets. Photoprint reads: "This photograph is loaned to you.
