2010 - THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES
Ad in 1956 Van Nuys High School Yearbook - The Crimson and Gray - Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley 2010.

Caption of the ad reads: "The new line of 1956 Chevrolet cars and trucks is displayed by P0LLARD-RAVENSCROFT CHEVROLET, 6232 Van NUys Boulevard. Here Fred and Tony admired the beautiful Bel-Air convertible and listened to the friendly salesman as he told them the advantages of owning a Chevrolet. Pollard-Ravenscroft maintains an excellent service departmentfor all cars, old or new."

This student parking lot just north of Riverside Drive at Woodman Avenue is still in use in 2010. At the time this yearbook was published teachers who belonged to the Catholic religious order of the Brothers of Holy Cross resided in the mission-style building at the top of this photograph. The structure is now used for administrative purposes and the few remaining Brothers reside in a nearby home off-campus.

San Fernando Valley kids have had an unending love affair with cars from the time automobiles became accessible to student wallets. They make up a major part of the Valley's historic "car culture."
