2009 - The Year of Valley History
Your Museum is a very busy Community. Despite our important projects such as the Northridge/Zelzah Centennial history committee, we catalogue dozens of items each week. The High Collection photograph below, in its original form, is very faded and difficult to figure out. When it was scanned and manipulated for color and size, a very interesting detail emerged. Aside from what appears to be an adobe or stone wall in bad shape, there are several picket fences in the foreground. Arranged in squares they seem to me to be family cemetery plots.
The photo may be of the graveyard at the Mission San Fernando Rey de España or the old Pioneer Cemetery.
