First look at maps from Mount Washington cabin

feather-maps-randmc.jpgGlen Creason, the curator of all things maps at Central Library, really scored with that donation to LAPL of maps from the home of hoarder John Feathers on Mount Washington. Creason has posted some of the library's new acquisitions on Shutterfly. Just some "appetizers," he says.

On Facebook, Creason posts that "Words just don't do this unreal (actual one-week) experience justice."

I like in the LA street map book below — I assume it's an early Thomas Bros. guide — how there's no attempt to line up the streets on facing pages.
