Photograph album documenting life in the Los Angeles area during World War I

Mostly Los Angeles County: 1918-1919. Album. This 72-page 9” x 8” album contains approximately 200 photographs ranging in size from 3” x 2” to 5” x 7”. The cover of the suede album features a photograph of a small sailboat. The glue-mounted photos are in nice shape; a few have tape on a corner or two. There is light wear to the cover. A few photos have be lost or removed.

The photographs in this album are all related to well-to-do an extended family apparently living in Los Angeles County and probably affiliated with the Long Beach shipbuilding industry.

12 shipyard, ship construction, and launching photos (the Craig Ship Building Company at Long Beach, the Long Beach Ship Company, and possibly the Southwestern Ship Building Company on Terminal Island),

7 Naval base and warship photos from San Pedro, Long Beach, or both,

7 photos of what looks like the Santa Fe Railyard at Long Beach,

6 Rose Parade photos (Long Beach float, Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce Float, etc.),

6 photos of The Pike at Long Beach (Jack Rabbit Coaster, Bath House, Goat Cart, etc.),

5 photos of San Juan Capistrano including the Junípero Sera statue with the old large cross,

2 photos of an apple orchards and souvenir stand probably at Apple Valley,

2 photos of a military parade including one with a mock-up tank,

A number of street city and town scenes, some with street cars, and

Many family photos including automobiles, camping on the beach, children, meals, bicycles, a gramophone, pets, a house with snow, etc.

Very good. Item #008655
