Default L.A. Maritime Museum

My DH and I visited the L.A. Maritime Mueum in San Pedro, CA where we saw a small temporary exhibit called "Hollywood to Hawaii." The exhibit contained photos, posters, menus, and a 1930's place setting from the old steam ship "Los Angeles," which was owned by the Los Angeles Steam Ship Company. In those days, Hollywood celebrities, politicians, and other notables made the crossing to Hawaii, thus establishing Los Angeles as a major passenger ship port beginning in 1922.

I especially liked the art deco posters and the old photoraphs of Irene Dunne, Johnny Weismuller, Delores Del Rio, and theater heir Lloyd Pantages and his wife, Helen. I urge all Californians and visitors to see this temporary show if you're in the area. It only takes a few minutes to see. You might also be interested in a 1/48 model of the "S.S. Poseidon" used in filming the movie. (I forgot to check if they have a web site.)

J.
