Chambers of Commerce of the San Fernando Valley Collection
documents the expansion
of business, industry, and suburban consumer culture throughout the San Fernando Valley
during its post-war period of rapid growth from the 1950's through the 1970's.
The West Valley Associated Chambers of Commerce was organized in December 1927 by four West
San Fernando Valley chambers of commerce -- Canoga Park [formerly Owensmouth], Chatsworth,
Northridge [formerly Zelzah and North Los Angeles] and Reseda [formerly Marion]. The
chambers joined together to promote a spirit of cooperation among the West Valley's
business, residential and civic interests, and to advance the civic, commercial and
industrial welfare of the region through legislative action.
