This chapter takes a tour of southwest Los Angeles, which goes through the mixed commercial and older residential section of the city, passes the buildings of two large metropolitan newspapers, a hospital devoted exclusively to the treatment of crippled children, and two magnificent churches. Cutting across the campus of the University of Southern California, it ends at Exposition Park, in which can be found the Los Angeles Coliseum, municipal swimming pools, and the Los Angeles County Museum of History, Science, and Art.
