Great pics Erich. A rare commodity these days...people actually performing manual labor.

Neat bunch of photos, Erich. Thanks for posting them!

I like them all, but that first one is my favorite of this group. Those boys on that trailer must have had quite a ride, particularly with the wheels it had.

Tim, I think from the hats that the are the grand fathers of the children that some of us are trying to send back home. By us I don't mean me.

The light colored touring car (non-T) appears to be a 1913 Buick Model 25.

The 6th picture is of "downtown" Tujunga. It still looked much the same in 1958 when I lived there. The studio was in Montrose. I had lived in Montrose from 1939 through 1957. Erich, where did you get these pictures?

Wow!
Thanks for the link. Those old pictures really brought back memories and I wish California were like that today! I can only remember back as far as the very late 1930's and 1940's, but it hadn't changed very much since the 1920's. The bulk of the growth began after WW 2 with the subdivisions. Now almost all the farms are gone and it's just wall to wall city!

Norm, even the club members here say how easy it used to be to drive all over Portland with such lite traffic, not any more.......

Erich
Thank You VERY much for that link to those pictures. I was raised in Granada Hills from 53 to 76. My dad and I joined the San Fernando YMCA which was then housed in the Andres Pico Adobe in 56.
Just brings back many good memories my "ute" in the Valley.
I only remember the LAPD driving Plymouths and later AMCs. Maybe the Catalina was a special pursuit car?
