Here's an interesting rppc. (real photo postcard)



ebay






Let's take a closer look at the photograph on the left.


detail

Note the two workers.

Is that a ghost sign on the building next door?






The postcard was addressed to 'County Flood Control' at 8th and Figueroa.



It was postmarked at the Arcade Station in 1937....Hmmm. .but the Arcade Station was long gone by 1937. ....So what, exactly, is the Arcade Annex?
(I've seen the postmark many times but I've never specifically asked about the annex)





for search purposes: southwest equipment co. - 1928 e. 7th St. - L. A. - VA.8521 - sales - rentals
