The Library of Congress/Ira Gershwin Gallery presents historical maps of Los Angeles from the collections of the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division. These diverse works of craftsmanship, precision, and imagination provide a guide to some of the most remarkable stories of the city's history: its discovery, its growth, and its industries, as seen by explorers, engineers, artists, residents, and boosters.

This exhibit is on display at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles from January 28, 2006 through January 2007.
