Torrance / Union Tool Company: 1924

Torrance / Union Tool Company: 19??


This is a 1924 aerial photo of the Union Tool Company in Torrance. The camera is pointed northeast.

Union Tool was the first large employer in Torrance and began operations in 1913. The Pacific Electric Torrance line is visible cutting across the upper left corner, and again starting at the middle left and going diagonally down to the lower right. The track serving the Columbia Steel mill is also visible making a backwards 'S' curve at the upper left (almost touching the largest building in the photo). The Pacific Electric viaduct over Torrance Blvd is just out of the picture to the upper left.
