Glendale History: Snow Golf, 1949
1949 started with a pleasant surprise in mid-January: snow blanketing the area for three straight days. The duo above embraced the winter wonderland for a round of golf (at the very least they took the time to run out onto the course to snap a photograph).
This photograph is one of the thousands available to library patrons and researchers at the Special Collections Room in the Glendale Central Library.
The Special Collections Room also contains news clippings, books, maps, and other materials that cover the history of Glendale, neighboring cities, and California in general. The collection is particularly useful for local history and genealogy research projects. Special Collections also houses the Cat Collection, one of the largest collections of feline-related materials in the world.
The Special Collections Room is currently open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m and 1 to 3 p.m. and by appointment. Please call (818) 548-2037 for additional information.
