Description
Photograph caption dated August 13, 1958 reads, "This 30-year-old house at Moorpark street and Colbath avenue long has been considered serious bottleneck for traffic on Moorpark where it juts out into the roadway. Some also considered it a monument to Valley pioneers who built it by hand with boulders carried from the Tujunga Wash. Traffic and progress held sway and it was decided to destroy the building."
