Thanks to Brent Dickerson for the card, appearing in Part 3 of his Catalina story on his epic "A Visit To Old Los Angeles & Environs." This chapter has an amazing collection of early Catalina views. At the bottom of the page are links to other chapters.

Thanks to Brian Michael McCray for this fine postcard of the Casino Building from his collection.
