Old Pics Of SoCal

I've been coming across a few of these lately on another site, and I thought I'd share...hope you'll do the same with old pics you find.

Here's US 101 being built, back when City Hall was the tallest building in town. Hall of Justice in the center. I'd like to know what the old building on the right is. edit: Keith (wb6anp) researched it and discovered the building in question to be the old Hall Of Records. Thanks for that Keith

As the sign indicated, Girard was the original name of what is today Woodland Hills. At the same time, Canoga Park was named Owensmouth.

I'll have to take my camera to my barber's shop and grab some shots of photos hanging there.
