CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2013
Earlier on this blog, I wrote a little about the Olive View Sanitarium in Sylmar, California. Here's a picture of the complex before it was destroyed by fire in the 1950s. This postcard gives us a good idea of just how large the site was. Rumor has it that the facility was considered as part of the U.S. military's plan to house allied casualties from the planned invasion of Japan during the Second World War.
