1954 Notre Dame High School Arches Yearbook - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Gary Fredburg 2010.
One would expect to find copies of school papers or commencement programs tucked into old yearbooks, but there are often other interesting things as well. For example, inside the back cover of a 1954 Notre Dame High School, Arches Yearbook, is this great aerial photograph of Sherman Oaks. Notre Dame High School is identified by the large oval playing field (still there in 2010) and the auditorium/gymnasium building. The school is located on the corners of Woodman and Riverside Drive. Woodman runs north and south into the foothills of Sherman Oaks.
