3 PRICELESS PHOTOS OF DAVIS MANSION IN HISTORIC NORTH HOLLYWOOD

2009 - The Year of Valley History

Historic Davis Mansion - Lankershim / North Hollywood, California - page 22 of Davis Family Photo Album - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by David High - July 2009.

Note that the front yard of the historic Davis farm mansion was just being planted when this photograph was taken. Look for the small palm tree in the center. The farm and mansion were located where today Riverside Drive and Lankershim Avenue cross.

The yard is growing here in this rare photograph from the David Family Photo Album. See how the palm tree has grown? Across the path to the house there appears to be a watering hose. At the back of the house, a windmill to pump water is seen.

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