ArchivesMain MenuIntroductionThe greater Los Angeles area is on the traditional lands of the Gabrielino/Tongva, Chumash, Fernandeño Tataviam and Yuhaaviatam/Maarenga’yam (Serrano) peoples. We acknowledge their presence here since time immemorial and recognize their continuing connection to the land, to the water and to their ancestors.L.A.

Douglas Sr., Douglas Aircraft Company was headquartered in Santa Monica until 1975, with satellite plants in other cities. The war effort in the 1940s led to an astonishing expansion at Douglas, where peak wartime employment was recorded at 160,000 workers. Many families counted multiple members as Douglas workers. The growth resulted in new trailer homes sprouting up in Santa Monica, meeting an unprecedented demand for housing.plain2020-10-12T14:09:16-07:0001/01/1940-12/31/1949Santa Monica Public LibraryCopyright has not been assigned to Santa Monica Public Library.Santa Monica Public Library Image Archives, Museum of Flying CollectionSanta Monica, Calif.UnknownCurtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e

The Archives include surrounding areas such as Pacific Palisades, Venice and Malibu among others. As early as 1875, Santa Monica's beaches attracted visitors from other areas, making tourism and transportation key local industries. The Archives include many images of resort hotels, bathhouses, amusement piers, the Long Wharf (intended Port of Los Angeles), Southern Pacific Railroad, and Douglas Aircraft, along with bearchgoers, shopkeepers, classes of schoolchildren, founding families, Spanish land grant holders, and other historically significant people. All of the Archives' images are available in digitized format on the web from the Library's digital collection site, Imagine Santa Monica, http://digital.smpl.org. The Library has the Santa Monica Outlook newspaper (1875- 1998) available on microfilm at the Main Library. Early years of the Outlook (1875-1920) are also available from the Imagine Santa Monica site. The Library's staff has selectively indexed and annotated articles published in the newspaper between 1950 and 1998. Since the demise of the Outlook, the Library's staff has indexed the local information published in the weekly "Our Times" section of the Los Angeles Times and is currently indexing the Santa Monica Mirror. Both are also available on microfilm. The newspaper indexes are available online from Imagine Santa Monica, http://digital.smpl.org.
