White Point Hot Springs, San Pedro, California.

Abstract/Description: Image shows view looking southeast at the White Point Hot Springs saltwater swimming pool and bath house. One swimmer is visible diving into the swimming pool, with several guests along the railing. A pool fountain is visible at far right. Located along the shore about three miles southeast of Portuguese Bend on property owned by Rámon Sepúlveda, the resort was built and operated by the Tagami family and was a popular coastal attraction during the 1920s and 1930s. Construction began in 1915 by Tamiji Tagami, and when completed the resort was comprised of a hotel, restaurant, rental cabins, sulfur-spring pool, saltwater pool, bathhouse, and a pier from which speedboats shuttled day-fishermen out to an off-shore fishing barge. The spa continued to operate until heavily damaged by the 1933 Long Beach earthquake.
