    The Signal Gasoline sign in the back ground provides somewhat of a clue.

    Founded by Sam Mosher in 1922 as the Signal Gasoline Company, Signal was originally a California company that produced gasoline from natural gas. In 1928, the company changed its name to Signal Oil & Gas, entering into oil production the same year. Signal merged with the Garrett Corporation, a Los Angeles-based aerospace company, and in 1968 adopted the Signal Companies as its corporate name. http://honeywell.com/About/Pages/our-history.aspx

    Looks like you beat me to it, Mark. I was going to say the same thing and hypothesize that it may be 1920′s to 1930′s.

      One of my favorite things about the photos is the little details that tell so much. Looks like I am not the only one

    I am guessing mid-1950′s. Art-Ray postcard, the Signal sign, and especially the boats with hull ID numbers.
