1912: Santa Cruz Hand Map


“The map was part of a promotional brochure  centred on the Casa del Rey Hotel, and the adjacent Casino. Both were recently built by Fred W. Swanton, a local businessman and civic leader who had such an impact on the area at that time that the city was nicknamed, Swantacruz.”
