* Directories shown in BOLD are known to exist in
microfilm format at the Culver City Julian Dixon Library.

Do you live in Los Angeles?
Do you have access to the Julian Dixon library?
Do you know how to print from microfilm?
Do you have a spare evening or two?
Do you want to make $200?

Make me copies of 1927, 1931, 1937, and 1949.
I will pay you cash. Need more? Let's talk.
Maybe $ 0.20 per page?

Remember, the population was far less then.
So there won't be that many pages (<200p.?)

NOTES
Palms, CA phone books are my objective. As far as I know, most old Palms, CA phone books are available as "Culver City - Palms" telephone books, but I don't care about Culver City. These are ZIP code 90034, previously known as "LA, Zone 34".

I do not require the original - a complete, quality photocopy is acceptable. So, if you have the ability to make a photocopy, that would be acceptable. Some of these phone books are available in Los Angeles County libraries, but I don't want to drive down there to copy them.

Condition is a factor.
The prices above refer to complete and readable phone books.
Stains, tears, and dog ears don't matter - readability does.
A lesser offer will be made for incomplete phone books.

My Objective
To make a large map of Palms, showing each house, and WHO was living there, at the time of the published phone book. I will start with Mentone, Keystone, Motor and Vinton Avenues, between National Blvd. in the north, and Venice Blvd. in the south.

I have already started a partial map, on my web page
Old Palms California 90034. This will show what I have in mind.
