Vintage HISTORICAL POST CARDS San Pedro Los Angeles Harbor Cargo Terminal Ships Wharf

A collection of historical post cards showing life in 1920s San Pedro, featuring the city hall, lumber wharf, cargo terminals, trains and more.

A glimpse of life in the past, we are pleased to present this collection of 18 historic post cards of the San Pedro, Los Angeles area. Featured here are portraits of San Pedro's city hall, the famous Beacon Street, harbor, Front Street, the waterfront, and Lumber Wharf. All are done in brilliant color, with intricate detail of life in the early 20th century.

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!
