Overview
Los Angeles County's South Bay is referenced by the lower arc of Santa Monica Bay and includes the communities between El Segundo on the north and Palos Verdes Peninsula on the south, eastward to the Long Beach border. Roughly defined over the years as the coverage area of the Daily Breeze newspaper, as well as the confines of the South Bay Council of Governments, the South Bay always has been much more than the beautiful coastlines of Manhattan, Hermosa, and Redondo Beaches, as seen in these vintage postcards. It was, as it is today, also the residential and workaday worlds of Torrance, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Inglewood, Gardena, Lomita, Carson, and the Los Angeles Harbor communities.

Author
James Osborne, Lawndale city councilman and historian and author of Arcadia Publishing's book on Lawndale, and Marilyn Ron, owner of Antique Attic in Torrance, pooled postcard collections with Jerry Roberts, author of Arcadia Publishing's books on Hermosa Beach and Hawthorne, to present these bygone scenes, the majority of which have never before been collected in a volume.
