2009 - The Year of Valley History
Special thanks to Fred Berk, Librarian of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley, and to Gary Fredburg, Vice President of The Museum for acquiring the vintage postcards and creating the special display for L.A. Heritage Day on March 22. The display was so effective that The Museum's booth was never empty during the 5 hour exhibition

Jerry Fecht, president of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley, mans The Museum's booth on L.A. Heritage Alliance Day. It was a cold, windy day, so we placed the historic postcards display flat on the table.

Thanks to Richard Hilton for purchasing, and setting up the canopy over The Museum's display. More than 35 visitors to our booth signed up to learn about future walking tours of The Museum. People were amazed to learn about the NoHo historic area of Los Angeles.

Museum Development Director, Michael Stevens provided brochures about The Museum for our successful time at Heritage Square.

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

John Bwarie wants us to know that the photo attributed to him was taken by another.
I think the photographer may have been Richard Hilton.
