Patania Eviction, 1966

Lucy and Sebastian Patania occupy their home in defiance of a court order to vacate.  A bulldozer smashed down the Sebastian Patania residence at 192 Oliver Street in Monterey on February 3, 1966. The residence that Sebastian and Lucy Patania occupied for over forty-years was demolished as part of the Monterey Urban Renewal Project.  (Monterey County Herald Archives)
