View from Stough Park’s “Inspiration Point” in 1936, near the present location of the Starlight Bowl. According to the Burbank Parks and Recreation Department, Stough Canyon Park originated in 1916 as a gift to the city of over 128 acres to be used exclusively as public parkland from real estate developer Oliver J. Stough. Improvement of the upper portion, known as “Inspiration Point,” began in 1934 and, by 1950, included facilities for picnics and camping as well as a wading pool. Note in the lower-left corner of the photo: “Photo Art Shop ’36.” Note on the margin of the negative: “Inspiration Point: Stough Park.”
