While preparing for The Museum's upcoming historic postcard exhibit, this priceless image of Campo de Cahuenga's original adobe was discover by Fred Berk, The Museum's Librarian.

The caption of this 102 year old postcard reads:
"Adobe House where Treaty of Peace between United States and Mexico was signed. House is over 100 years old. Hollywood, Cal" It was postmarked 21 August 1907
"Dot. tell when you get in town! Well P."
Mrs. C.D. Milberry Avalon, Catalina Island, Calif. Gen. Del.

If you or a family member has historic postcards relating to California history (especially the San Fernando Valley) please contact your Museum soon. Telephone 1 (818) 347-9665
The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves a great Museum of history and culture.

As I mentioned in a earlier blog posting, editing this blog is a catch-as-catch-can situation // otherwise I would remove this post.
The house in NOT Campo de Cahuenga, but an adobe in Glendale.
