"Once again I have encountered difficulties obtaining information from a metropollitan area. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce has no listing for this company. Local libraries showed no data. I did manage to establish a time frame of operation through telephone directory listings, and ascertained at least a rudimentary outline of their business scope through a couple of print media advertisements

J.C. Floyd established the Pacific Mail Order House at 119-231 South Los Angeles Street, Los Angeles, California in the year 1912. This enterprise was one of the first to offer Asian Imports nationwide on a mail order basis. Their stock in trade appears to have centered around clothing and novelty items.

I ran a check on Mr. Floyd's home and found it to be a downtown boarding house. This, coupled with my knowledge of Los Angeles' less desirable neighborhoods, leads me to believe this was an ill financed, fly-by-nigh operation, from the onset."
