Books about the Port of Los Angeles

The Port of Los Angeles has served Southern California for more than a century, by bringing ships and their cargo to the area, aiding the military through several major wars, and establishing Los Angeles as a major presence on the international maritime scene. Because of the Port, Los Angeles is the key that has opened North America to the Pacific Rim and brought the world closer together. Over the years, the Port of Los Angeles has collaborated with a number of authors to help tell its story. With in-depth research and images from the Port archives, the history of the Port comes to life, while exploring the development of Los Angeles from pueblo to major metropolis.
