Los Angeles History in Postcards

Venice Beach

If you think the beach gets overrun nowadays, check out this image of lovely Venice Beach from 80-plus years ago. This is just one of a boatload of penny postcards featuring Los Angeles county at the USGenWeb Penny Postcards Archive, and they’ve also got collections for Orange County and, well, pretty much everywhere else in the country. For more, see Sean’s post about LA Nocturne’s similar archive last year.
