ANSWER: Building in the photo--with the main channel of Los Angeles Harbor in the background--is the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce at 820 S Beacon St., San Pedro. Building was originally a Carnegie library and, once upon a time, served as San Pedro's temporary City Hall. Photo was made from roof of U.S. Post Office and Customs House.
ANSWER: It could, of course, be nothing else but Fishermen's Wharf (Berths 72-73) at Los Angeles Harbor, home of our great fleet of purse seiners. The photo has caught the masts, the crow's nest, and the jumble of nets that symbolize this particular dock. Oh, yes, the fishermen here aren't interested in gross profits. They like net profits. And that should take care of that.
