The danger working around the damage from the Flood of 1938 is very apparent in this one of a kind photograph.

For those of us who endured the great Northridge Earthquake, the idea of refugees in the Valley isn't all that far fetched. This photograph tells many stories, including the formality of that time in America. It was an era when folks got dressed up to ride on airplanes and gosh - to stand in a refuge tent?

A special thank you to the members of the Universal City North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for adding these priceless photographs of San Fernando Valley history to The Museum's archives. The Chamber has been always right here for The Museum during these formative years.
