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

If you go to GoogleMaps, and enter "328 North Maclay, San Fernando". There, on the northwest corner is the church in question. In the early 60s, my pediatrician was located close to this church on Maclay. I remember it as a red-brick, almost Gothic structure back then, as is indicated in the photo. Today, however, it appears that the building has had a makeover, more of a "mission-style". On GoogleMaps, you may have to "travel" (using the arrows on the GoogleMap street) up and down Maclay, and also on 4th street to get a clear view, but you can clearly make out the window arrangement on the front of the building, and how the pointed elements on the tower remain.
