"Rancho La Canada: Then & Now" is a feature length documentary about the history of the Crescenta-Canada Valley.
The film is divided into THREE PARTS. Each Part is self-contained and can be viewed separately.
PART I - RANCH 60:00
Early settlers to this valley were Civil War veterans in search of healthful climate. They struggled to transform this arid, rocky terrain into productive citrus groves, olive groves and vineyards. INCLUDES: Pickens, Alta Canada, La Canada, La Crescenta and B.D. Jackson
PART II - HEALTH RESORT 30:00
For a brief period the valley became a health resort and tourist attraction. Hotels and sanitariums sprang up all over. INCLUDES: Sanitariums, Hotels, Castles, and St. Luke's
PART III - SUBURB 60:00
As the population of greater Los Angeles exploded, it was inevitable that the valley would evolve into a suburb. INCLUDES: Flintridge, Montrose, 1933 Flood, the Bund, Japanese Internment, JPL and Freeways
SPECIAL FEATURES 70:00
The DVD also includes over an hour or rare never-before-seen footage of the valley - such as home movies shot in Flintridge in the 1920s; German Festivals in La Crescenta in the 1930s; Indian Springs swimming pool in the 1940s, and much more!
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 3 HOURS AND 40 MINUTES
