NO HOME DEPOT
57 (fifty-seven) YEARS AGO !
North Hollywood and all of L.A. fell under
a freak Winter storm in February of 1949.
COMPARE PICS 1949 versus 2006 in Noho.
My Dad once gave Dr. Fishbeck of Ch 7 news
weather copies of pics which were aired,
I think it was the 1970's. (Henry Elovitz)
First the front of the House
then the back and that is the same FENCE.
It WAS FEBRUARY 1949, just wanted
you all to coooool off a little.
VIC TANNY PICS
A CAT OF 2 CITIES
Vic Tanny was born in Sunland Tujunga and lived
6 years there. He has lived with his sister Sweety Pie
and they both moved with me to North hollywood
2 years ago. These pics are in Noho. Enjoy a product,
as myself, of both Valleys and Citys.
-PUT THE POLITICIAN
ON THE CORNER AND HE
MAKES A MOVIE BY HIMSELF
wb pic click on pic to see trailer more ST shots
Would you believe the corner shown in the pics below
recently had our GOVERNATOR, prior to him being
elected, making a major motion picture right at this
same corner of Foothill and Mt. Gleason?
IT IS TRUE...T 3 Terminator 3 was filmed extensively
in Sunland Tujunga and right at this corner where there
is now this new mini mall. We saw something being
built back then and said 'oh no another car repair shop?'
Then the rumors, and as you see it is, as in my pics,
the pre production of the movie from sets to before shooting shots.
YOU MUST come back and CLICK on each LINKs listed below *
THERE IS THE SAME
AS SEEN IN THE MOVIE.

-SUNLAND TUJUNGA EATS
Being hungry is one thing we like to take care of.
That early evening 'I do not want to cook' syndrom
takes hold, get the keys, let's go to JIMMY DEANS
Right at the same corner the 'little old lady' got the fine
for moving too slowly at Foothill & Woodward on the
northwest corner seen here on this video pan first showing
the old kmart, where the drive-in was, then shows the
crosswalk the lady got fined and then JIMMY DEANS.
You can eat inside or outside or use the drive-thru.
Hamburgers, hot dogs (ask them to grill 'em)
malts, shakes, fries, onion rings...
our hometown hangout.
meet at AL READ'S
at Foothill Summitrose and Mt. Gleason.
The two shots show the corner where it sits
I have included a menu that might be out of date
but shows their delicious dinner items. I always
try to the PRIME RIB salad baked potato and
of course their special toasted garlic bread.
They have Specials daily that include seafood.
The Bar is one of Sunland Tujunga's favorite
wateringholes. Sports TV and lively chat fill the air.
...and don't forget the cheese toast.
-VALLEY PLAZA MEMORIES
Here is a remainder of Valley Plaza.
Radio Shack and Smart & Final occupy a building the I
say was an original inside mall. The Radio Shack area
where shops which you would enter right inside the
Thriftimart Market. As you walked in to the right was
a kiosk like shoe repair. There was also a Chef's
Chicken BBQ. Further north the other buildings
included DRUCKERS Kosher Deli, a Jewish Bakery
and the Thrifty Drug with a fountain at the back.
The market at Archwood was originally called
Mac Donald's Market with a Scotsman logo.
(enlarge:click) THERE WAS AN 'AIRPORT' TOO!.

Sunland Tujunga & North Hollywood
are the City of Los Angeles,
California in the U.S.A.
We also live in the County of Los Angeles
this is the evil maybe x-logo that has that
G-d reference, and other stuff of the devils.
The County has used for it decades, WHO KNEW?
We can always make fun of ourselves
as with the fake-logo for Kalifoana.
With this neighborhood blog about
these cities with unique
historys and lifestyles,
we will shed some humor
and truths concerning our
Los Angeles Megalopolis.
