Covers the city of Los Angeles with the Los Angeles Country Club to the West, Slauson Ave. to the South, the Evergreen Cemetery in Boyle Heights to the East, and Elysian Park to the North. "H.E.H." are the initials of Henry E. Huntington, who owned the Pacific Electric Railway Company. Scale statement on map reads "1320 feet to one inch."
