Thanks for posting.

A lot of good info on those draft registration cards, like Al Crocker's home address in South Pasadena. I lived in Pasadena for three years in the 1980s, and it would have been fun to do a walk-past back then.

The Crocker factory address on the card - 1346 Venice Boulevard, Los Angeles - also currently has an art-deco-looking brick building. Good stuff.

Bigsby used to make guitars and is credited with inventing the whammy bar (tremolo arm) too.
