Published as part of an environmental storytelling partnership with the Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies (LENS) at the University of California, Los Angeles.

In this interactive map you can explore the layers of history at Taylor Yard by turning on and adjusting the transparency of historical maps ranging from an 1897 survey of the Los Angeles River, through a map used by the Home Owners Loan Corporation for “redlining” and denying home mortgage loans in 1939, to the present. The city’s G2 parcel is shown on the map along with Rio de Los Angeles State Park, managed by the city and California State Parks, and the Bowtie Parcel, an undeveloped parcel owned by state parks.
