HOW AMELIA EARHART BOUGHT HER FLIGHT LESSONS

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY         2013

Sometimes we forget that most famous people weren't born that way.  What did Cher and Alan Ladd do for spending money when they were kids? 
How did Amelia Earhart get her money for expensive flying lessons, or afford those expensive cross country adventures? 
Well like many of her sister, Amelia Earhart worked at the Pacific Bell Company on Magnolia Avenue in North Hollywood. After she married the publisher George Putnam, the couple lived in Toluca Lake. 

Pacific Telephone operators in the San Fernando Valley in 1965.

Tired of not knowing the great Valley in which you live?  Get up and learn about it.
On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, the founder of the tour programs for The Museum of the San Fernando Valley, Richard Hilton will take tourists through the library and North Hollywood.

Any idea of the address on Magnolia? Is the building still there?
