sherman oaks, california, 1949

in 1949, it snowed in the san fernando valley and by “snowed” i mean snowed: snow fell and it actually stayed on the ground. my grandfather frank took pictures – an entire roll of pictures, in fact – of the snow that fell around his family’s house in sherman oaks that day and this is one of them.

One thought on “sherman oaks, california, 1949

  1. Because Mom was pregnant with me at the time I was told this story over and over, but I had never seen this picture, so it was definitely Feb or March since I was born the end of April and it probably was raining all that month. Thanks as always. Aunt Helene
