Photo courtesy of the California Historical Society Collection at USC Library.

Circa 1880. Portrait of 19 members of the Ramirez family at Los Nietos. The Los Nietos community, located in today's southeast Los Angeles County area of Whittier, had been a subdivision of the former Rancho Los Nietos. Jose and Josefa Ramirez (seated couple in the center of the photo), patriarchs of the family, were Mexican-born farmers who had purchased 140 acres from Rancho Los Nietos in 1830. They developed there a successful and productive agriculture community that continued into the early 20th century. The Ramirez family were neighbors to the Colima family, namesakes of Colima Road in Whittier.
