Shore Acres Trailer Park- Tortilla Flats 1940's

As a child, my mother lived in Shore Acres Trailer Park at 209 E. River Street from 1947-1949. Does anyone have pictures of that area or information that they can share? I understand it was the closest lot in the park to the Ventua riverbed, and was straight across the river from Hobo Jungle.

I remember hobo jungle, river street and that whole area. don"t recall a trailer park tho. The area had a cow fattening place think it was owned by the Griffins.
Many thanks to you for the memories of river rd. It ran along the railroad tracks thru most of ventura.I lived as a teenager at Shamrock motor court and we played in that whole area on the Levi.

Shore Acres
by: Moses

Shore Acres was a real place and did exist. It was celebrated in the Tortilla Flats Mural on Figueroa St. that you can see to this day. Shore Acres was located where the Cal Trans yard is today, at the west end of Front Street, behind the Fair Grounds. They were a self contained community, they had their own market and used to show outdoor movies on the wall of the market. Viewers sat on the ground and a can was passed around for donations. I have seen only a couple of pictures taken at Shore Acres, but they do exist.
