Postcards of the South Bay

View various postcards of South Bay historic landmarks in the table below. Their order is arranged geographically, beginning in the beach cities (from El Segundo down to Torrance), snaking back up into and throughout the central northern-most reach of the region (from Inglewood down to Lomita) and finishing at the base, moving west to east (from the Palos Verdes Peninsula to the Los Angeles Harbor). If you would like to add to the collection, please submit an image of the historical postcard from a South Bay city/region to info@southbaycities.org, and we will consider adding it.
