CHERISHING OUR VALLEY                 2013

What a treat it was this last week to hear Phyllis Hansen's presentation to the San Fernando Valley Historical Association at the New Light Church in Northridge. Phyllis spoke of the ancient art and science of flower/plant pressing. Audience members soon learned that for some has long been a charming hobby, easily became an art and useful science. 
This 1912 historic postcard in the collection of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley expresses the feeling those of us from The Museum had about Phyllis' talk.

Postcard mailed on August 18, 1912 to Mr. E. Olsson, #1 Pietoria Street, Passaic, N.J." Gift to the Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Gary Fredburg 2013.  (click on image to enlarge it.)

The message is:  "Dear Friend, You are wellcome. I will wait for you at Spring Street and B'way.
