1919 VICTORY PARADE DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES

2010 THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES


Victory Parade May 1919 - Newspaper clipping gift to The Museum from Beth Perrin 2010.

With Memorial Day just around the corner, this photograph from the May 31, 1959 edition of the Los Angeles Times, seems very appropriate. Here Company F of the 117th Engineers who served in the Rainbow Division in World War I come marching home.
This image was taken facing north on Broadway from 4th Street downtown. 18 soldiers from this brave company were killed in the war.
