Although Los Angeles is widely known for its manufacture of motion pictures and aircraft, and the extensive commercial development around its harbor, relatively few people are aware that it produces such diversified goods as automobiles, clothing, pottery, and canned fish in such quantities as to put it in a high place among the industrial cities of the nation. Although the city's industrial plants are widely scattered, its largest industrial district is a fairly compact stretch along the railroad-lined Los Angeles River, plants overflowing the city limits into many small, new, independent communities that wholly depend upon the factories for their livelihood. This chapter describes some of these industrial plants including the J. A. Bauer Pottery Co. Plant, Los Angeles Brewery, Capitol Milling Company Flour Mill, Cudahy Packing Company Plant, and Old Mission Winery.

Keywords:   Los Angeles, industrial plants, manufacturing plants, industrial districts, J. A. Bauer Pottery Co. Plant, Los Angeles Brewery, Capitol Milling Company Flour Mill, Cudahy Packing Company Plant, Old Mission Winery
