This page was last updated on 23 November 2008
This is a study of manhole covers from various parts of Los Angeles, California.   Los Angeles is one of the largest cities in the world, and is the largest city in California, with a population at about 3,957,000.   Below is is the official city flag and city seal.
Los Angeles is made up of many communities that are part of the City of Los Angeles, but with their own character, but you may not notice except for some signs, as Los Angeles represents the epitome of urban sprawl.   Much of the San Fernando Valley is within the city, while some parts are incorporated, such as San Fernando, Van Nuys, West Hills, and Burbank as examples.
