ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the changing landscape of the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles, California between 1930 and 1964. This report covers the period wherein the valley evolved from an era of intensive field and orchard agriculture to a functional and morphological extension of the expanding urban-industrial nucleus of Los Angeles. The most significant trend indicated in the study was the building of apartment houses in 1961, which equaled that of single-family housing.
