CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2013
As part of my self-discipline of going through our family photographs to identify images that may be of interest or value to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley, I encountered these "great snow" pictures. The photos are undated, and my wife (who was a 2nd or 3rd grader at the time) says they were taken in 1949.
1949 snow - Atoll Street North Hollywood
This is badly distorted photograph, but was included in this series to show the size of the snowman Dorr Shereves made for his little girl in North Hollywood. For some reason Mr. Shreves brought a snow shovel from Iowa in the family's relocation to California in 1947. The shovel, which has never been used again in the San Fernando Valley now resides in our family's Tarzana carport.
