Allan ~ According to records LA had 425,000 residents in 1908. It sure was a different world then! From your research its plain that Herriman went on a lot of these "small town" assignments. They add significantly to our understanding of LA as it transitioned from a prosaic village to teeming metropolis. Thanks, Allan!Post a Comment
