Description
Southwood Riviera Royale in Torrance normally is a typical residential tract with houses of above average cost. But on weekends when the pickets come it seethes with racial strife. In this weekday scene on June 26, 1963, children cross a street. From left: Lis and Lois Sivoti, Mary Bowen, and Leslie Sivote.
