ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Shel Weisbach, a member of the original board of the Museum of the San Fernando Valley and the author of the e-book, “Pathways of the San Fernando Valley”, has been a history and architecture buff since he was ten years. As he is quite fond of repeating, and repeating, his father gave him a box of bubble trading cards of the presidents and being an odd little tyke he memorized the presidents in order; but, never quite figured out how to blow a bubble. Some years later, after majoring in history in college and moving to the San Fernando Valley he acquired an SLR camera and found himself roaming the Valley and elsewhere seeking the historic, the beautiful and the unusual. The rest, as we like to say, is history…
Let’s enjoy Ranches & Farms of the San Fernando Valley.
