Glendale History: Thanksgiving Friday Shopping on Brand Boulevard?
While the picture on the postcard above probably wasn't taken the day after Thanksgiving, it's certainly a good representation of how the scene might have looked on Brand Boulevard at the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, circa 1958.
In observance of this year's Thanksgiving holiday, the Glendale Public Library will be closed from 5 pm on Wednesday, November 24 through Sunday, November 28. Regular hours for the Central Library, the Brand Library & Arts Center, and all of the neighborhood branch libraries will resume next week.
This postcard is one of the thousands of images available to library patrons and researchers at the Special Collections Room in the Glendale Central Library.
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.
