These drawings were done by Spencer between 1930 and 1950.  During this time, at the beginning of his career with MGM,  Spencer spent much of his free time sketching and painting in and around Los Angles. Spencer chose subjects throughout the area, from his Studio in the San Fernando Valley to the shipyards in San Pedro and Long Beach.  Spencer loved boats, and his drawings of fishing boats and freighters are some of his finest.  Other drawings are historical documents, done in a time period before Los Angeles and the surrounding area grew into the megalopolis it is today.
