HODY'S DRIVE IN - VAN NUYS, CALIFORNIA

Hody's Drive In Restaurant 1967 - vintage postcard given to the archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Gary Fredburg 2009. (click on image to enlarge)

In the year 2000, Van Horn, Iowa had a population of 216 people. I wonder how many people it had when R&S wrote this post card featuring Hody's Restaurant on the corner of Sepulveda and Victory in Van Nuys in 1967? On a good night, the Van Nuys Drive In Theater would have had more than 216 people in its audience?
San Fernando - July 11, 1967 Sat. PM
Hi, Arrive there about 12:30 PM. Wonderful weather all the way. Had lunch at Betty's.
My glasses just fell into in Las Vegas at nose piece. Had to buy new frames. Hot today. Love R&S"
