FERDINANDO NAMESAKE OF THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

2010 -- The Year of Valley History -- Northridge100

Fernando King of Spain- Rancho Cordellera del Norte - Photograph for the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Gerald Fecht 2010
On the grounds of Rancho Cordellera del Norte in Northridge, there is an odd little statue of king Ferdinand (1217 to 1252). The sculpture, made of concrete, has a charming disregard for anatomical correctness giving it the look like an enlarged Medieval chess piece. (I love it.)
