Title supplied by cataloger.; Image is a reproduction. This image represents the right side of a panoramic view of the flower fields at Flower View Gardens, a family flower farm on Los Feliz Boulevard near Western Avenue. Homes on Nottingham Avenue are in the background. The family leased land in Los Feliz to grow flowers for the wholesale market on Wall Street including sweet peas, carnations, chrysanthemums and ranunculus. They leased the land from 1917-1942 and from 1945 until the 1960's. During World War II, the family was evacuated to a relocation camp and later returned after the war to manage the flower gardens again. See S-006-471A-D for the left of the image.
