Hooper planted fields of alfalfa for livestock and an orchard of orange trees, shipping his first crop of oranges to Arizona in Oranges were still a rarity then, with fewer than eight thousand orange trees in the County. As the expansion of the railway system allowed orange exports to Chicago and the East Coast, they became a symbol of the good life to be had in Southern California. The economy was booming after the end of World War II. Soldiers were coming home to start new families; they were armed with favorable mortgages through the Veterans Benefits Administration and able to find good jobs at the nearby manufacturing plants of Firestone, Goodyear, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, and others.
Most of the houses along the neighboring streets of Zamora, Antwerp, and Hooper as well as the numbered streets in between were built around this time. Lily remembers her neighborhood as a place where everyone looked out for each other. When she was growing up, it was a mix of mostly black and some Latino families.
When Lily was in her last year of high school, she became pregnant. Her father bought the two-unit property across the street as a place for her to live while she continued to work toward the family dream of a college degree. A two-unit building? Lily got caught in the middle of a legal dispute between her father and mother, and ended up in prison as a result.
As a single mother with a record, she struggled to find a job and her father died before. El padre de Lily Gonzalez fig. En el recuerdo de Lily su barrio era un lugar donde todos cuidaban unos de otros. It took ten years of legal action to secure what her father had always intended for her: a house that she owned, where she could raise her children, with rental income from the second unit to ensure that the mortgage could always be paid.
That was the point of two units. Lily is a writer herself, and she tells her story better than anyone. You can find her blog posts at LaComadre. In , Con Edison put a number of Depression-era homes up for sale near the corner of 64th and Parmalee. It needed the land for expansion. Henry Titus. Jean was the mother of Joe Titus fig.

A mining and real estate investor, Nadeau always thought big; at one time, he was running twenty-seven mule teams fourteen head each between Los Angeles and Inyo County. His crews hauled silver bullion from the Cerro Gordo and Panamint Mines at Inyo, and borax from San Bernardino, in addition to bringing back wine, brandy, fruits, nuts, potatoes, corn, and other provisions on the return trip to sell to the miners.
He owned a large store, a number of way stations along the San Bernardino route, and a steam mill at Mojave. When Stearns Rancho was subdivided in , the area that would become Florence was already taken by Nadeau, who had purchased the land shortly after his arrival in the County. He planted 1, acres of beets there and built a large sugar beet mill, conveniently near the railway, to process the crop. When the beets failed to turn the profit he anticipated, he transitioned to oranges and vineyards.
Nadeau weathered a number of such reversals of fortune, always rebounding. At his death, he left an estate totaling over one million dollars and his vines covered 2, acres in Florence; it was widely proclaimed to be one of the largest vineyards in the world. Anyone who has come here from far away, unafraid of hard work, willing to learn many new jobs, and dreaming of building something of their own shares the same entrepreneurial spirit that brought Nadeau to what would become Florence-Firestone.
Joe still lives on 59th Place, along with his sister, Mary Rose Cortese. The Titus and Sever families were no strangers to real estate dealings. Joe Titus grew up managing properties for his father, including the twenty-eight apartments on East 59th Street that rented out.
The Great Depression of the s and the Long Beach earthquake in both hit South Los Angeles hard, and the Titus family lost a number of their properties. Joe graduated from California State University, Los Angeles, and has worked many jobs throughout his life, as a carpenter, pipe welder, home remodeler, and custom shipping container builder at Martin Containers.
Newberry stores in downtown Los Angeles. Like the entrepreneurs who built Los Angeles from unpromising beginnings, the Titus and Sever families were resourceful, adaptable, and made the most of what came their way. They took the idea of a family farm to heart and kept geese, chickens, and rabbits. They grew vegetables, Concord grapes, and fruit trees. The avocado tree, where Jean posed holding Mary Rose's wedding bouquet, is long gone, but you can still see the fence in the background of Mary Rose's bridal picture.

But this time the house can tell only part of the story. In , the city commenced construction of a great Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe, commemorating the appearance of the Virgin Mary before the Aztec Indian Juan Diego in —she spoke to him in his native Nahuatl language, assuring him that her protections extended to the Indians even as their population was decimated by Spanish conquest.
The tradition of venerating the Virgin of Guadalupe inspires the many murals with her likeness that adorn the walls of local bodegas in Florence-Firestone, twining together the heritages of Spanish, Mexican, and indigenous peoples, and offering Latinos, wherever they have come from, a reminder of home.

And then he was drafted in during the Vietnam War and began a distinguished career in the military fourteen years in the US Army and twenty-six years in the California Army National Guard , marrying and raising his own family along the way.
He came back to Florence-Firestone forty years later, when he retired from his service in the National Guard and his job at the California State University Office of the Chancellor, to take care of the family home. Fremont High School en Florence-Firestone. La casa estaba en ruinas y asediada. What he found shocked him deeply. The house was run-down and under siege. The neighborhood had changed during that time from a neighborhood where everyone got along to one rocked by violence. But he also understood the urgency of reaching across differences to find common ground.
He became the public safety coach for the Florence-Firestone Community Leaders, and he still holds that post. To honor this memory of Alprentice Carter, especially during this new time of anger and uncertainty in American history, we recognize the Carter family home as a site of historical interest.

Chiefly known for developing the San Fernando Valley and as the founder of Van Nuys, in particular, William Paul Whitsett — was yet another Eastern businessman who moved west for health reasons, in this case tuberculosis.
Florence-Firestone has felt the impact of Whitsett in three ways. Whitsett heartily agreed with American industrialist Henry Ford Sr. Finally, he enabled the Boy Scouts of America to acquire Camp Whitsett in the Sequoia National Forest, ensuring that city boys could have the kind of country experience that had brought him back to health.

Meant to evoke the grand boulevards of major European and Latin American colonial cities, Alameda Street is an industrial thoroughfare these days, dotted with pop-up taqueros and street vendors. There are few trees, but Plaza La Alameda shopping center beckons as a site of beauty, mentioned by many people who participated in the Popular Survey of Good Things in Florence-Firestone. The major automobile and tire factories were going full tilt.
Service station owners know better than almost anyone how their business impacts the environment. Florence-Firestone sits within the Los Angeles River watershed on ground composed of marine and continental gravel, sandy silt, and pebbly shale dating from the Pleistocene age two million years ago. That gravelly soil creates an immense filtration system through which groundwater, surface runoff, and any contaminants flow to the river and sea. So think twice the next time you change your oil, dispose of a car battery, or fertilize your lawn. Your actions reach farther than you may realize.
In those days, the business was called auto wrecking and dismantling, and the business facility was referred to colloquially as a junkyard. Like many immigrants who came to Southern California from other parts of the country and all over the world, Jake knew the value that could be extracted by reusing things rather than throwing them away. During the hard times of the Great Depression and the shortages and scarcity on the home front during World War II, junk was good business.
You recycled to survive. In , Jake moved the operation to its current location at South Alameda, building the storefront from lumber salvaged from an MGM sound studio— he hunted down a Russian-speaking engineer at the Department of Water and Power DWP who could help him with the permitting paperwork. He surfaced the storage yard with discarded asphalt from nearby street-repaving projects. There were bean fields on this stretch of Alameda before there was industry. A never-ending parade of freight trains rattling up and down the Alameda corridor carried grain, oranges, dry goods, livestock, and manufactured goods.

For Marty, Florence-Firestone is built on the strength of small, family-owned businesses rooted in and giving back to the community—good local jobs are the key to the health and vitality of the area. Marty sees it as his job to help small businesspeople—gardeners, contractors, salespeople, repairmen, and haulers—get their trucks and vans back on the road so they can get back to earning a living. Reciclabas para sobrevivir. None of this comes easy. Sam worked until he was eighty-five. These days the shop is closed on weekends, but Marty continues to build the business on strong customer service, boundless energy, and an enterprising responsiveness to the changing times, with his son Ethan working by his side.

With its positive, inspired outlook and ambitious programming, the YAL serves over three hundred kids each day and offers everything from computer labs to home-cooked meals, a beauty salon to karate classes. The surfaces of every community are hideouts for memory. As things are built and demolished, rebuilt and repurposed, they almost invariably leave traces of one time overlaying another. Sometimes we honor the past with a historical marker or plaque or mural or maybe even a big bronze statue.
But other times, we leave remembering a bit more to chance. But these ordinary experiences are also worth remembering, even if their physical traces are almost accidental, little more than leftovers—too difficult or not worth the trouble to remove. Wondering what such things might be—an abandoned backyard incinerator fig. What do we miss?
What do we need? What can be reimagined or repurposed? Fortunately, Thrifty brand ice cream, made in El Monte, is still sold in some Rite Aid stores and still served with the special cylindrical-shaped utensil that gave each scoop a flat top.
