Roosevelt Highway Malibu 1945
The Museum of the San Fernando Valley salutes the brave men and women from the public agencies who have been risking their lives to save the lives and property of the people of Southern California.
Special thanks also to Judge Dallas Holmes of Riverside who sent his museum a beautiful portfolio of 1945 images of Los Angeles and Hollywood, printed by the Southern Pacific Railroad Lines. The sixteen color images combine to preserve a priceless snapshot of our city and county just as World War II came to a conclusion. The portfolio arrived on October 23, during the time when a great fire threatens Malibu Colony.
Pacific Coast Highway, featured in this 1945 image of Malibu, was then called Roosevelt Highway.
