"At the Olympic Trailer Court, located at 2121 Bundy Drive in Santa Monica, trailers are parked near one another and close to power poles, from which electricity can be pulled for residents. Large wooden crates, once used to hold airplane engines, have been set up near some of the trailers."
Circa 1940.
The Pratt & Whitney and Wright aircraft-engine crates most likely came from the Douglas plant just to the south, brought home by employees who lived in the trailers... good storage.
