10 DWP SLIDES (part 1)

DWP Slide of 1st Sketch of the City of Los Angeles - 1853
- gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Diane McCreary 2009 (click on image to enlarge)
The original use of these slides is unknown, but since they are all water-related, they were likely part of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power presentation packet. The Kodachrome box in which they came has a note referring to other slides (not included) from 1958. The slides themselves are not in a Kodak frame. 2009 - the Year of Valley History
The Los Angeles River that supplied the early settlers in Los Angeles, came from sources in the San Fernando Valley.

An earlier image of this water wheel was just published on this blog, but this slide image is in color. 2009 - The Year of Valley History

DWP Slide of the First Los Angeles Reservoir - sometime after 1861 - gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Diane McCreary 2009 (click on image to enlarge)
The water in this historic reservoir came mainly from sources in the San Fernando Valley.

The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history & culture.
