This is a growing collection of deco and streamline images from the South Bay. I use this term quite loosely, referring simply to any location within a hundred miles (or so) south of San Francisco Bay. The territory is, therefore, broad and ripe for exploration. I hope to add to this collection as time permits. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to contribute to this page and, most importantly, report any errors in the text.
