Every now and then, when they build a new building they uncover a capped well even today. Then the EPA gets in the mix.

Are you sure it's Venice? Looks more like Huntington Beach to me.

Larry, It's what the photo was titled when I came by it.

I don't remember any around Venice beach. But they were all over the area between L.A. and Long Beach in the late 1930's and 1940's. The name Signal Hill was either named for the Signal Oil Co. or the oil company was named for the hill. There were even a few around Glendale Blvd. and Sunset blvd near the old Subway tunnel just a couple miles from downtown L.A.
