Photograph article dated April 11, 1958 partially reads, "It is hard, in the year 1958, to picture San Fernando Valley, which has become one of the great 'Suburbias' of the world, as a vast expanse of wheat fields and fruit orchards, but such a picture is still strong in the mind's eye of Frances Muir Pomeroy of North Hollywood, daughter of Valley pioneer, Margaret A. Muir. Mrs. Pomeroy grew up in one of the Valley's fruit orchards, near the spot where North Hollywood High School now stands and began her community experience by playing the piano and teaching Sunday school in the pioneer church primary department."
