Night Used Up

Turns out that the Pomona Public Library has an online collection of about 5000 old Frasher Foto postcards (all black-and-white, from what I've seen), many depicting odd corners of Southern California that one would not expect to have drawn the attention of a postcard publishing company. I mean, The Azusa Rainbow Angling Club? There are a few pictures of ships in L.A. harbor in the 1930s and 1940s, too, mostly small freighters very suggestive of Somerset Maugham tales. The scans are rather small, but then so was Southern California in those days.

Anyway, that's mostly what I did with my night. Slowly, my hard drive fills up with the evidence of a vanished world in which there were no Wal-Marts. I expect this computer to eventually be confiscated, as part of our WalMasters' program to eradicate all evidence of places which existed before 1987. In the meantime, I get to look at that evidence whenever I want. It proves I'm not crazy. I really saw such things!
