These fishing boats docked inside the "San Pedro Slip" are the remnants of a once large and proud fishing fleet. Many of the larger wooden boats were built in the 1920's and 30's, three and four generations ago. While many have changed hands and owners, each boats identity and history is known to many of the locals in the town. The S.P. Slip is a historical waterfront site, which is one of a few working fish harbors in Los Angeles; it is adjacent to the Ports O'Call Village. Here, Pacific Coast Welding is seen along Berth 73, and the "Santa Maria", "Pacific Leader" and "Chovie Clipper" all docked alongside. Photograph dated June 2001.
