Lomita Gas Processing Plant 1

Contrary to popular images of Los Angeles,
our region has one of the largest concentrations
of industrial activity in the world. The oil
boom of the 1920s was the first wave of
industrial development for the region.
This idle Lomita Gas Processing Plan in Long
Beach in the heart of Long Beach is a vestige
of this gilded age. Other reminders of this past
can be found here.
