2009 - The Year of Valley History
Johnathan Smith 1905 - gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by David High July 2009 - refer to photo HC-78
This photograph of Johnathan Smith, taken 104 years ago at the Wesner Studios in Los Angeles, poses many questions. But, it answers a few as well. In this case, its identification as Toluca, California demonstrates that North Hollywood was still being called Toluca at the time. Unfortunately, at the present, we don't know who Johnathan Smith was. Let the detective work begin!
