If This is Spring, Come on Summer - Harbingers of spring, now just two days away, swarmed over the Southland beaches yesterday in the form of adorning bathing beauties. Here is a group of them from the Girls’ Dare Club on the strand at Venice. When they bowl they simply knock ‘em over and when they swim the waves grow even wilder - March 19, 1934, Los Angeles Times

Sunday school class on the steps of 1st Presbyterian Church in Eagle Rock. Pictured are approximately 52 children, both boys and girls of various ages, as well as seven female teachers sitting in the back row. The church was established on March 5, 1914 and was first occupied on Easter Sunday, April 4, 1915. It later became the Creswell Hall and eventually succumbed to demolition in 1962 or 1963. Eagle Rock is a neighborhood in northeastern Los Angeles that derives its name from a massive boulder at the district’s northern edge, which contains an indentation that casts a vaguely bird-shaped shadow on the rock at certain times of day. In 1906 Eagle Rock became an independent city and was incorporated in 1911 with a population of approximately 600; in 1920, population had grown to 2,250. Just one year later, in 1921, this figure had leaped to 3,800, and by 2005, the U.S. census estimated the population at approximately 27,875 [via]
