The tour will also include information regarding how industrialist Jared Sidney Torrance, prompted by developing labor troubles in Los Angeles, decided in 1910 to build a "workingman's paradise" -- a model industrial city halfway between Los Angeles and the San Pedro harbor. The tour is an easy, but brisk walk covering eight blocks -- the walk is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, and is hosted on the fourth Sunday of every month, May - October. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended, and guests are invited to bring a camera, and a friend!
