Jo Mora would begin his map making in pencil and next define the image in black ink as seen here. His sure hand and maticilious planning led to few mistakes - which would have been covered with china white paint - the old version of correcting fluid.

Several copies of the carte were originally printed on light brown paper most likely as a proof before the final print run. Notice the Los Angeles title script, eventually to be included in the top center, has yet to be added.
