Image shows interior view of unidentified office building with partial view of diorama of Palos Verdes. Visible is the southern end of Wilmington Harbor and San Pedro, looking northwest toward the cities of Torrance and Redondo Beach. Howard H. Towle (1891-1972), an early salesperson in the Palos Verdes Project, notes in his oral history (Palos Verdes Local History Room, p. 3) at having seen the model installed in the Auditorium Building (also known as the Temple Auditorium) on Fifth Street and Olive across from Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles in October of 1921, in an early meeting for the development of the Palos Verdes Project.
