Photograph was edited for publication purposes; Title supplied by cataloger. Pop's Willow Lake was a resort along Big Tujunga Wash upstream from today's Hansen Dam, which featured a dance hall and cafe. James A. (Pop) Gautier opened the resort in 1931, but suffered major damage in the 1938 floods. It was rebuilt in the early 1940s, and Marilyn Monroe (Norma Jean Baker) went on dates there with her first husband while still attending Van Nuys High school. Photograph dated July 11, 1950 shows James 'Pop' Gautier, owner of Pop's Willow Lake near Hansen Dam, posing with his wife, Aimee.
