Half-brothers Ben Lubbon and Santos Torres hang out circa 1930 in Lubbon’s car in Fresno, California. The Fresno family of José Torres and Josie Armijo sometimes took trips to Los Angeles in the eldest son’s car. The 250-mile trip through a mountain pass took 13 hours in those days. A winding, two-lane highway linking the Los Angeles Basin with the San Joaquin Valley over the Tejon Pass was called the Ridge Route. Now the trip only takes 4 hours on Interstate 5.
