7 Photos of The South Bay's Agricultural Past
The South Bay area of Los Angeles County is mostly residential and commercial now, but for a very long time it was an agricultural center. From the time the area was settled by immigrants until the mid to late 1900s, there were dairies dotting the landscape, and the whole area was decorated with fields of bright blooms, soon to be sold at wholesale flower markets around the world. Gardena was known for its berries; Lomita for its celery. Though there is still one small agricultural area of Compton, known as Richland Farms, South Bay farm living is overwhelmingly a thing of the past. A few years ago we visited the last of the large Torrance farms as it was shutting down. Today, we go back even further and take a look at the South Bay's agricultural heyday.
