- During the 1940s, the site Travel Town now occupies “was used as a Photo Experimentation Laboratory, a military film location, a Camouflage Experimental Laboratory and Yard, (and) a Prisoner of War Enclosure.” [from Beneath L.A.]
- Wyatt Earp died in Los Angeles on January 13, 1929 after living in the city since at least 1920. His residences included 4021 Pasadena Ave., and 4004 W 17th Street, where he expired at the age of 80. [Wikipedia]
- Terminal Island was known as Rattlesnake Island prior to the Los Angeles Terminal Railway’s extension there in 1911. [from Beneath L.A.]
