2009 - The Year of Valley History
Since many of the photographs in the David High Collection of The Museum are of people related to the pioneer Davis Family of Toluca/Lankershim (North Hollywood), I first assumed that the ship photo below was from the family's move to the San Fernando Valley about 1895. But, considering the condition of the deck, paint etc. it seems like this might be a ferry rather than a higher class transportation vessel.

At first study, I thought this woman was standing on the stairs of the Weddington House, but look at the posting for Milo Wesley Weddington. The stairs look steeper and higher.
