I have a semi-detailed map of them with me and I've thought about photocopying them. Anyways, the really interesting district is the 26th which looks like a screwdriver with a sideways handle. It starts out in Venice, then spikes up to take in the Culver City area I think and then has a long slender tunnel through areas like Westmont and then has the third pincer that takes in the bulk of the Watts neighborhood.

The 19th district also looks interesting because it stretches from downtown Los Angeles, then through Boyle Heights and veers in a southeastern direction all the way to the Orange County border.

I believe the 1950 CA redistricting was the last time the GOP was able to gerrymander the state.
