South Pasadena CA was one of the first suburbs of LA, and today many historic buildings remain in its downtown area. For example, there is the Spanish Baroque and Egyptian style Rialto Theater and the historic Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain. There are also many independent mom n pop businesses in downtown South Pasadena CA, which further contributes to a feeling of yesteryear. South Pasadena CA has been threatened for many years with demolition associated with a proposed extension to the 710, but so far the city has managed to resist this development and maintain its historic character. One historic aspect of South Pasadena CA that should not be preserved is the use of asbestos and lead paint in construction.
