This aerial view of Randolph and Universal City was taken about 1947. Although of poor quality, the photo shows how little Universal City grew during World War II. Most of the houses are along West Wright Boulevard and between East Aviation and East Lindbergh Boulevards. Note the 14 “tar-paper shacks” on East Aviation, easily the biggest development in Universal City at that time. The Randolph Cleaners “Quonset hut” is only half as long as it is today. The railroad water tower and pump house are gone. (Robert Nothstein)
