Downey Boys (1942)

Many neighborhoods can not maintain themselves with the level of competition. They may get pulled into other neighborhoods or they just fade out. Only discuss those areas from LOS ANGELES that are gone.

Does anyone know where this gang was located? They allegedly jumped members of the 38th streets in 1942 at the sleepy lagoon which resulted in the Sleepy Lagoon murder in which members of 38st were arrested. The 38th streets were located at Vernon and Long Beach blvd at the time. I found the court summary but don't know how to upload

That vato Gibby has posted that back in the 40s Downey was the name of Broadway before the street name was changed and they used to be just as you entered lincoln heights by downey park and i believe their name was the downey ramblers (?)

they were probably in Downey, not to far from the location where all that drama happened.
