CHERISHING OUR VALLEY 2013
In 1926, the city of Los Angeles opened Hollywoodland Girls Camp in Griffith Park. It was, and continues to be one of our region's greatest successes.
When I discovered a childhood photo album belonging to my wife, I found these snapshots of her Girl Scouts adventures in 1950 and 1951 at Camp Hollywoodland. Since I am always after my friends and associates to go through their family photos and scrapbooks to share Valley-related images with The Museum, the scrapbooks demanded that I practice what I've been preaching. I hope you enjoy the pictures taken by a little North Hollywood girl 62 long years ago.
