100 YEARS OF VAN NUYS HIGH SCHOOL - TYRONE AVENUE FLOODS 1952

BUILDING A GREAT MUSEUM FOR THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

School year books often have unexpected treasures hidden in them. Here in this 1952 Van Nuys High School book, photographs taken by students of what was then a nearly annual flood of Tyrone Avenue reveal the perfect excuse for missing call but a significant Valley transportation problem as well.

Tyrone Avenue was no joke, as this submerged car demonstrated.
