San Pedro is a port district of the
city of Los Angeles, California, United States. It was annexed
in 1909 and is a major seaport of the area. The district has
grown from being dominated by the fishing industry to become
primarily a working class community within the city of Los Angeles.
Each of the 18 post cards measures
5 1/2 X 3 1/2 inches. Total weight for the lot is 2.5 ounces.
These cards date from the 1920s most
likely, and as such have a wear typical with what one would
expect. The images are in very good condition, with bright colors
and good detail. The reverse sides are yellowing to some extent
and there is some foxing around the edges of some. Even so,
they are easily read and have no major creases or tears, with
only the occasional minor dog ear.
For collectors of post cards in general
and for those with an interest in historical Southern California,
these cards are a great buy!
