Program for the San Fernando Junior Cosmos Seventh Annual Fashion Show at Glen-Aire Country Club in Sherman Oaks, October 23, 1954. The event was a benefit to raise funds to redecorate the Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) House in San Fernando.

Another look at the long-gone and much-lamented Richfield Oil Building in downtown Los Angeles that was erected in 1929 and razed in 1969. This is the floor selector inside the elevator.
