Navigating by the stars of free speech and free press Random Lengths carries the cargo of words and ideas, of thought and reflections in random lengths and widths.
The metaphor of our name refers to the early days of the San Pedro Bay, when lumber schooners from the Pacific Northwest arrived frequently to offload their cargoes. The timbers they carried came rough cut in what was commonly termed “random lengths and widths,” a term that is still used in the lumber trade today. Random Lengths, comes from this heritage of the harbor and building communities. Source
