Los Angeles, 1906

A Sanborn fire insurance map showing the location of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 210, Terrace Park and Powers Place. The park, originally Summerland Park, today encompasses a 1.17-acre triangle of parkland, its panhandle, and the street - the shortest in L.A. - that bisects them. Powers Place runs horizontally (and off the image) beginning about a third of the way down on the right-hand side. This 1906 map shows the park's original name, though the park was officially renamed Terrace Park on Halloween 1904, called Summerland Park just a few months.
