2009 - The Year of Valley History
San Fernando Valley (at night) - vintage postcard - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Gary Fredburg - 2009
This postcard got my family into a debate. We identified the Sheridan Universal and the 101 Freeway. I believe that the street with bright lights going toward the upper left is Lankershim Boulevard. What is your opinion.?

Next year the Northridge Community will be celebrating its centennial. Your Museum will be taking a lead in amassing a history of the community. If you have photos of family, schools, religious institutions, or businesses in Northridge, the Chairman of our Northridge 100 committee (Richard Hilton) needs to hear from you.

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