22 Model Cities

WebUrbanist collects pictures of city miniatures built by planning departments, for tourist attractions, or by obsessives who go into painstaking detail to recreate Chicago, Moscow, or Tokyo.

This model of Los Angeles, for example, was built through the WPA program in 1938 to aid planners in the development process. It resides at the Natural History Museum.
