Photograph article dated October 18, 1960 partially reads, "Sidewalk superintending may not be very profitable, but it's one of the most common occupations in North Hollywood today. The big attraction? Skycrapers [sic]... North Hollywood is in the Eastern San Fernando Valley and its postal boundaries include the communities of Studio City and Toluca Lake. Population estimates range from 101,600 (from the city) to 170,000 (from the Chamber of Commerce which recognizes postal boundaries). The Valley's two other large cities, Burbank and Van Nuys are to the east and west of the community." Photograph caption reads, "Lots of parking - View above shows Sears' store in Valley Plaza and some of the 7,000 parking spaces available to shoppers in the center. The district attracts some 100,000 persons a day, operators say. Sales top the $100 million mark annually, a boost for North Hollywood."; See images #00143815 through #00143820 for all photos in this series.
