As it happens, I'm super-familiar with this location, as my mother worked for a couple of decades a block away, and my father a couple of decades half a block away. e_r, it's Long Beach, adjacent to Signal Hill:

Most of the oil derricks and so on are long gone, but it used to be a forest of derricks there.

(I verified my thoughts at Find-a-Grave for young Miss Burnett; it's Long Beach Municipal Cemetery.)

Ringo Bros Produce (Samuel and Dominick) appears at either 1110 or 1112 San Julian Street in the CDs from the early 1930s to the mid-1950s.
