Locust Street and Civic Drive

— circa 1920 —

In 1917, local walnut ranchers formed a growers association and, a few years later, built a walnut processing plant next to the railway line that ran along today's California Boulevard. The plant closed in 1957 after most walnut groves were removed for housing developments.
