This map was drawn up by HM Gousha maps, and shows a much smaller L.A. back then. The inset map actually has the shapes of the main downtown buildings in red silhouette.

This map is one of a series of Shell maps printed in 1962 and 1963 used for a family road trip through USA. See the Shell South Central US from 1962 and the Southeastern US 1963 Shell maps. The trip routes are highlighted on the maps. The tourist agent charting the routes even had a readymade stamp that said "Scenic" or "Direct" for the routes.
