Glendale History Drive 2011!

The Glendale Public Library is pleased to announce the launch of History Drive 2011!

In the Library's first History Drive in 2009, when we invited folks to share images from their collection with the Library, we collected over 100 images documenting the history and culture of the Glendale and the surrounding area.

One set of photographs, donated by former Mayor John Drayman as a part of the History Drive Kick Off event in March 2009, fetures the work of local professional photographer Glenn B. Ward. Ward's images,
taken primarily in the 1950s, provide a rich history of a specific time in Glendale and the nearby areas of Montrose and La Crescenta.

For History Drive 2011, we're asking for information about
these pictures!

Flickr users can leave comments and tags that will help tell each picture's story: who, what where, when, anything that describes the image and its context. Those without a Flickr account can still view the images on Flickr and participate by emailing their comments to the library at
