THE SHAME OF CAMPO DE CAHUENGA

El Camino Real - The King's Highway - postcard given to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Gary Fredburg 2010 - (click on image to enlarge)

Marking great El Camino Real was the project of Mrs. Armitage Forbes and her associates who met regularly at their base of operations, Campo de Cahunga in Studio City - North Hollywood. I wonder what those heroes of California history would think today to see the once beautiful plants and trees half dead from lack of watering.

We understand that there is a budget crisis and a water shortage, but it is a shame for the city of Los Angeles to neglect one of California's most important shrines.

It is a native garden--the plants are historic treasures as well. So sad.
