If approved by the city, NoHo West will bring 642 rental housing units, 256,000 square feet of office and retail use, and 316,000 square feet of new commercial development, including a cinema, to the 25-acre site.
In addition, I could not help but reach back in time and look at images of older department stores. What is your first thought about viewing these stores? Did you ever shop there? Your mother? Your grandmother?
JCPenney store - SFV 1950s
The Broadway in Panorama City - turned into the WalMart.
What do you think about those cars in the parking lot!
The May Co. store at Topanga Plaza 1960s
Ohrbach's - SFV 1964
The VW Bug and Corvair! Pretty cool.
Again, please comment below on any experiences you or your family had with any of these stores.
For The Museum's archives, if you have any photos, postcards, flyers, etc. from the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s you would like to donate, please contact Gary Fredburg at The Museum at 818-347-9665 or gary.fredburg@TheMuseumSFV.org.
