Torrance Float Entry--1914


Here's the Torrance entry for the 1914 Tournament of Roses. The city was two years old in 1914, and probably served as a promotion for the city.  Hmmm...two servicemen, two elegant ladies and a flower-covered oil derrick.

A Torrance citizen found one of the Tournament trophies that had been awarded to the city in a pile of their family's junk and now it is at the Historic Society.
