Rancho lands in 1898

Here is the section covering the San Gabriel and Walnut valleys. This one actually interests me more, personally, because this is the part of L.A. County that I grew up in.

I hope you enjoy them. I can study these maps for literally hours on end...

I've seen copies on eBay from time to time. That's the only source I know of.
