Summary expansion
The pamphlet reflects a very 1940s modernist presentation of Los Angeles County, emphasizing "the machine age" which "has evolved us into a nation of specialists--experts along a hundred different lines;" and "modern complex society" which requires thousands of well-educated, well-trained "young Americans." Also included is the Chamber of Commerce's typical note that the county does not provide public assistance for indigent job seekers. Sections of the booklet cover such topics as the outdoors, sports, beautiful homes, parks, religion, education, Spanish influence, culture, art, and science, movie industry, agriculture, "cheap and abundant water," petroleum industry, world trade, commerce, and automotive industry. Pages [57]-[64] contain an alphabetical list of cities in Los Angeles County, with brief descriptions of each
