LEARNING VALLEY SECRETS EVERY DAY

2010 THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

North Hollywood (Plunge) Swimming Pool - Photo by Gerald Fecht for the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley - August 2010 (click on image to enlarge)

Maybe, like me, you've been by the swimming pool in North Hollywood Park, dozens of times. Today, I learned from one of The Museum's walking tourists, that the "plunge" was considered of such importance to life in early NoHo that it was built to be seen as the focal point of historic Weddington Street. (Neat, huh!)
