This interesting guidebook to southern California was published in Los Angeles by Young & McCallster, Inc. in 1925. It was distributed by the Union Pacific Railroad to encourage ridership along it’s lines into the region, and a map of the entire railway system can be seen on the last page. Photographs, text, and illustrated views fill the preceding sheets with numerous reasons to visit;

“The rich fertility of its soil, awakened by the magic touch of water, yields a wealth that makes the former discovery of gold pale into insignificance. The lure of its always-gentle climate, mild and balmy in winter, cool and restful in summer, attracts thousands on thousands, year after year, from less-favored places. The spirit of its people surmounts obstacles and creates communities radiant with happiness, and flowers, and life.”
