The valley’s sad legacy

http://blogging.la/archives/images/2007/09/View%20of%20smog%20from%20universal%20city%20hotel-thumb.gifI was reading a friend’s blog today, and he pointed me toward a National Archives collection of various photos of US cities, and that in turn got me interested in images of LA and the Valley available from the archives online. And here’s my sad conclusion, when you search NARA’s Archival Research Catalog for “San Fernando Valley,” you get seven results. This is one of the three that are available online. It is titled “View of Smog from Universal City Hotel.” The other two are titled “Smog” and “Universal Studios Seen Through Smog,” and you can see them after the jump.
