Diorama of Palos Verdes, California.

Abstract/Description: Image shows interior view of unidentified office building with diorama of Palos Verdes under construction. Several men are on the floor, working on the plaster of Paris model, with plans and scraps of materials scattered about. Office workers and display cases are visible in background. Howard H. Towle (1891-1972), an early salesperson in the Palos Verdes Project, notes in his oral history (Palos Verdes Local History Room, p. 3) at having seen the model installed in the Auditorium Building (also known as the Temple Auditorium) on Fifth Street and Olive across from Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles in October of 1921, in an early meeting for the development of the Palos Verdes Project.
