RANCHO SAN PEDRO 04.28.06

In 1784, Juan Jose Dominguez, a soldier of the Spanish Empire, was granted Forty Leagues of land by King Carlos III, an area that encompassed the present-day Los Angeles Basin cities of Long Beach, Torrance, Palos Verdes, and Redondo, Hermosa and Manhattan Beaches. His heirs controlled significant portions of the original 75,000 acre grant until the late 20th Century. Today the area is the heart of research and development of Asian production of the American Personal Transportation Appliance -- otherwise known as the automobile -- as well as a nexus for the production of the fuel that it consumes.
