Description
Paul's Bait Shop is the first stop driving into San Pedro; difficult to miss, given the size of its sign (pictured). This photo shows a very large wooden sign along the side of a hill that reads "Bait" with a small arrow pointing toward the left. Below that, a smaller sign reads: "Parking for Paul's Fishing (illegible) Only". Located at 957 Front Street, Paul's Bait Shop's days are numbered as the Harbor Department plans to turn this area into a container yard. Photograph dated March 2000.
