Description
Photographs and albums relating to Perry-Woodworth and Company, and the Woodworth family and residence at Second and San Pedro Streets in Los Angeles. 1878-ca. 1913, undated
Background
Wallace Woodworth settled in Los Angeles in the early 1850s; the Woodworth adobe at Second and San Pedro Streets was replaced with a house. A receipt in the Seaver Center collections dates the operation of Perry-Woodworth and Company as early as 1865, selling furniture, mattresses and woodworking. The company continued to operate selling lumber and window sash at 76 Commercial Street until the death of Woodworth in 1882. His widow was Maria A. Foster (daughter of Merced Lugo [d.1913] and Stephen Foster; granddaughter of Antonio Maria Lugo.) Joseph J. Woodworth was a son.
