Description
Illustrated map of Tour no. 8 to Los Angeles Harbor. Starting at City Hall in downtown Los Angeles, the tour goes south on Alameda through Watts and Compton (illustrated by oil derricks) down Truck Blvd. (illustrated by oil storage tanks), over to Terminal Island. After a tour of the harbor, a side trip is made to Point Fermin and White Point. The return trip goes through the cities of San Pedro and Wilmington, and then to downtown via Main St. An inset map of the harbor has the tour circling Fish Harbor, down Seaside past oil storage tanks to the U.S. Lighthouse Service and the Quarantine Station, then over by ferry to Harbor Blvd.
