Description
A group of men stand near a trenching machine at the groundbreaking of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, located at 5761 E. Colorado Street in Long Beach. Prior to 1933, church services for Long Beach residents of Greek heritage were provided by the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church on San Julian Street in Los Angeles. Then in 1939, the first parcel of land for the church was purchased at the southwest corner of Pacific Avenue and 17th Street.
