San Fernando Valley Then

"Before the war, the Northridge area was mostly citrus, lemons, grapefruit, orange, and toward Canoga Park, it was mostly dry farm because they didn’t have any water facilities and that part of San Fernando Valley was the lowest part of San Fernando Valley, so in the winter it was called black frost, which would kill everything. So during the summer they grew out alpha navy beans and that type of crop."

~James Higashida
