2009 - The Year of Valley History
"Summer Outing" 1897 - Redondo Beach - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by David High July 2009 (click on image to enlarge) High Collection # 1.
What better way to deal with the over 100 degree temperatures this week in the San Fernando Valley, than this great picture given to The Museum by Dave High today. Taken in 1897, two Valley residents make the best of a summer day on an "outing" in Redondo Beach. Perhaps this well protected young couple understood 112 years ago that Redondo Beach and the Valley are at the same latitude as Oran Algeria and Cairo Egypt.
The San Fernando Valley, in the heart of the Creative Capital of the World, deserves at great Museum of history and culture.
