CACHE OF EARLY 1980s PHOTOS

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Periodically, small collections of photographs arrive to The Museum. Typically, they are slightly faded images of the kind that families simply discard when they downsize their homes or simplify their lives. I've included examples of these kinds of pictures to give an example of the problems such images present and their potential value to San Fernando Valley history.  Let's take a look.


 Los Angeles River in Studio City 1982  - Image 6378
This location has yet to be identified. Area before proposed restoration of the river.

 Residential house on Ethel Avenue in North Hollywood - Likely now in Valley Glen. - 6382

I think the first photo is of the Hollywood Freeway at Barham Blvd.

I think this isn't Lankershim & Magnolia. The street sign says "McCormick" Not sure if there is even a McCormick street in North Hollywood LOL
