CASUAL PHOTOS OF VALLEY AIR PORTS 1982


 BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Grand Center Terminal - Glendale - c. 1982
No longer in use as an air port.

In next month's Museum newsletter, I'll be writing about how important evidence gathering is for the process of the many aspects of San Fernando Valley history, culture and the arts. This week a packet of Valley-related photographs came our way through the work of Gary Fredburg. While none of the photographs taken in 1981 and 1982 are iconic, they added small pieces to the Valley's story. Here are three pictures of airport structures no longer in use for aviation.
