    I love this stuff! The “no radio” info was especially fun (and I love the photos of the buildings). It’s a treat!

    Thanks for your support Harry. If anyone has a suggestion of someone they would like to see from the 1930 census, let me know. Hoever they will have to be from the LA area so I can get a pic of their house – if it still exists.
