Description

Remarkable survey chart of San Pedro and Long Beach Harbors, by the Army Corps of Engineers.

The chart includes lots of detail and offers a rare look at the area before extensive development. Deanman's Island still shown as are several dock in the San Pedro around "Timm's Point". Main channel extend s into the Wilmington area with a large turning basin just off "Mormon Island". Dozens of place names and name of companies .

Rail and electric lines shown. In Long Beach is noted a Craig Shipbuilding company. Street grids shown, but no names. Shadows depict areas dredged or scheduled to be dredged.

A nice early map of the harbors.
