Vintage Snapshots Capture Daily Life of Venice Beach, Los Angeles in the 1930s

Venice is a residential, commercial and recreational beachfront neighborhood on the Westside of the city of Los Angeles. It was founded in 1905 as a seaside resort town and was an independent city until 1926, when it merged with Los Angeles.

Today, Venice is known for its canals, beaches, and the circus-like Ocean Front Walk, a two-and-a-half-mile pedestrian-only promenade that features performers, mystics, artists and vendors.

Here are some vintage snapshots capturing daily life of the beach in Venice, Los Angeles in the 1930s.
