The Lumberlady, that “abandoned freighter by the old pier,” was a U.S. Army Transport during World War II. She was at dock in Long Beach (CA) in October 1941 and delivering troops to San Francisco in December 1945. Back in the Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbor, her “businesslike” name got her mentioned in a tourism ad for southern California in 1955. Research by daveb, submitted by Steve Fox, 1/14/2005.

The music played on an accordion at the "Pizza Pie" restaurant is "Santa Lucia," made particularly famous by a lovely recording by the great Italian tenor Enrico Caruso. Pizza is a typical dish of Naples, the song references the Borgo Santa Lucia in the Bay of Naples, and Enrico Caruso was a resident of Naples. By some bizarre synchronicity, my husband and i decided not to cook our dinner tonight, but to eat "pizza pie" from the Forestville Pizza restaurant while watching Perry Mason.
