Modern History of Lomita
As Lomita emerged from the boom and bust of the 1920s and crept slowly into the 1930s, it soon acquired a new reputation as "Celery Capital of the World" (although some claim it could just as easily have acquired the title "Strawberry Capital of the World." Truck farming of vegetables, fruits, and eggs became the prevailing occupation of Lomita residents in the 1930s.
After World War II, Southern California and Lomita's population exploded. As the 1950s progressed, adjacent cities in Los Angeles county attempted to annex major portions of the original subdivision with Torrance succeeding. By the early 1960s, only 1.87 square miles of the original 7 square mile subdivision remained.
On June 30, 1964, after a couple of unsuccessful attempts, Lomita was incorporated as a California city. In addition to halting annexation, incorporation was intended to curtail the development and construction of high-rise apartments, a serious concern at the time. Although considerably shrunk from its original 7 square mile size, Lomita has managed not only to survive, but to mature as a vibrant community of the Los Angeles South Bay.
