When the builders of the North Hollywood Junior High School completed their new school in 1939, they could have little expected that their state-of-the-art school complex would be massively overcrowded in just five years. By 1945, eleven temporary bungalows were parked on the school's grounds that had been walnut grove less than a decade before.

Join Ray Marin in preserving images of North Hollywood (North Hollywood High School and North Hollywood Junior High School). History's stories are put together item by item, photograph by photograph.

The San Fernando Valley deserves a great Museum of history and culture.
