I've been trying to research the date a particular sign was posted on my property in Glendale, California. When I saw that it had the company's name (Pacific Fence Co.) and a very old 2L-4N phone number ( Hillside 8141 ), I grew to wonder when Los Angeles would have made the transition to 2L-5N, because I could probably figure the sign predates that time.
My property was built in 1926. I'm guessing that Los Angeles switched over sometime after WWII and before 1949, but I can't get a better fix on that. Any chance you know where to look?
(I've been scanning old postings and digests, but haven't found anything definitive)/
