9780738571577: San Fernando Valley (Images of America)

The Mission San Fernando was founded on September 8, 1797, as an outpost of New Spain, in the vast expanse between the San Gabriel and Santa Monica Mountains. Northwest over the Hollywood Hills from downtown Los Angeles, this land was developed into a vital farming and citrus breadbasket. After 1900, real estate developers began subdividing "the Valley," as it is popularly known, and by 1940, communities of Los Angeles proper and new cities formed into models of suburbia: Van Nuys, North Hollywood, Burbank, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, Encino, Northridge, Roscoe (Sun Valley), Tarzana, Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, San Fernando, Glendale, Canoga Park, Pacoima, Toluca Lake, and Woodland Hills. The film industry built studios, location ranches, and support facilities in the valley. The aviation industries grew too, and the Hollywood, Ventura, and Golden State Freeways redrew the map. Songs, movies, and television shows have helped ingrain "the Valley" into L.A. lore.

Title: Vintage Valley Love

Author: Alysia Gray Painter

Publisher: NBC LA

Date: 6/27/2011
"San Fernando Valley" from Arcadia Publishing debuts on Monday, June 27.
advertisement

San Fernando Valley is rife with ghosts of the non-chain-rattling, non-special-effects sort. (Although, given the number of soundstages in the area, there are a couple of wraiths of the chain-rattling, CG-y sort, on occasion.)
And we are glad to have these ghosts. Because while the sunshiny stretch has changed a lot over the last century, one can still see remnants of its citrus-sweet past, its first ranches, its nascent movie studios, and even its earliest subdivisions. The concept of suburbia certainly wasn't invented yesterday.
But, of course, the search for those things is made so much easier when several amazing photographs are compiled in one book. "San Fernando Valley," from Arcadia Publishing, debuts on Monday, June 27, and like other offerings from the company it is plump with vintage snapshots and interesting tidbits of a time gone by.
Is your favorite nook given the love? Toluca Lake, Tujunga, and Tarzana are represented. So are specific buildings, like Columbia Ranch and Victory Drive-In Theatre. And hoo, if Universal Studios wasn't on the eensy side once upon a time. Same for Warner Bros. and Disney. When we see our mega studios today it can be hard to remember that they started as a small clutch of buildings.
"San Fernando Valley" by Marc Wanamaker is $21.99. Find more information at Arcadia Publishing.
