Deadman's Island in the center of the photo denotes the entrance to Los Angeles Harbor. Looking left, the Wilmington breakwater connects to the Pacific Wharf and Storage Co. warehouse. The bow of the S.S. William Chatham is somewhat obscured by flatcars receiving a shipment of lumber. To the right of Deadman's Island, two dredgers work away. To the right, the rolling slopes of Point Fermin and San Pedro sprout new homes and streets.plain2021-10-19T21:08:42-07:0001/01/1913-12/31/1917Santa Barbara Historical MuseumNo Copyright- in public domain33.7365401 , -118.264982For additional information about this image see: https://t08a9146c20e4db40.starter1ua.preservica.com/uncategorized/io_c633b904-2184-454b-b647-99a4f8d9b59a/unknownPort of Los Angeles 1913-1917, 2020-104, Gledhill Library, Santa Barbara Historical MuseumAlejandra Gaeta955f992babcc9b7f4b13534f3e5511b89a8bc725

Sometimes they are all that remain. Whether a site was once a bee ranch, a homestead, sanitorium, or the Port of Los Angeles, the places shared here set the stage for the eventual growth, change, and expansion documenting the passage of time. Before the Santa Monica Pier was developed, Angelenos enjoyed the seaside at Pacific Ocean Park, built to rival Disneyland. After falling into disrepair, it was demolished. Generations of Angelenos traversed the iconic Sixth Street Bridge linking separate parts of the city. Once a major engineering feat but now demolished due to structural weaknesses, we can still see it on screen in movies and TV shows. The LA region was a military outpost long before it was a metropolis, as seen in the remains of Fort Drum from the Civil War era and Fort Moore from the Mexican-American War. And the old Pueblo de Los Angeles reminds us of the many people who have called this city home - Native American communities, Mexican peoples and Spanish colonial settlers. Despite the renewal and change inherent in the region, there is also room for remembering and honoring the past.structured_gallery2021-10-22T11:26:08-07:00Curtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e

As one of the oldest cultural institutions in Santa Barbara, SBHM is home to the vast archival collection of documents and artifacts within our Gledhill Library and collections vault. Our rotating exhibits in the Sala Gallery feature dynamic elements of Santa Barbara's local traditions, art, and historical events, while our permanent gallery "The Story of Santa Barbara" traces the development of Santa Barbara's history from the Chumash to the mid 20th century.structured_gallery2021-10-18T21:16:05-07:00Curtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e
