Abstract / Summary
When the Los Angeles Terminal Railroad connected the city to the coastal communities of Long Beach and San Pedro in the 1890s, Rattlesnake Island, the narrow strip of land in the channel across from San Pedro became linked to Los Angeles and was renamed Terminal Island. A lively recreational area known as Brighton Beach soon developed in one part of the island and thrived until its demise in the late 1910s, when dredging deposits caused the water to recede.
