Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph article dated March 11, 1948 partially reads, "Traffic in San Fernando Valley is thicker today than it was in 1900 - but the mud was thicker then. So were dust, cactus, sagebrush and jackrabbits. J. A. Elliott, 65, who went broke in real estate and now resides at Olive View, near San Fernando, drove the first automotive truck in this area at that time and his recollections are clear."
