Around Old Torrance

Ahh, Sartori Ave. It's the main street of old Torrance, and houses several antique stores, a pawn shop, and an awesome cigar store. I love walking down the (usually) quiet streets of this historical part of Torrance. Here's a couple pictures of some of the buildings in the area.

Most of the stores in this area have this layout. Glass display windows are the remainders of an architectural style long gone.

Across the street is Lauridsen Ballet Centre. I believe that this building was once a really big thrift store. I don't know what it was originally.

Every fourth Sunday Downtown Torrance hosts an antique street faire. Visit the official website here.
