City Archives

by Anissa Di Vincente

The Historical Society archive acts as a satellite repository for City Hall records. Included are documents from the offices of city council members and other officials.  The Parks and Recreation Dept. under the direction of Syd Kronenthal for more than 50 years, maintained complete records of programs, offerings, events and activities in huge scrapbooks which are available in the archive.  

  • The history of La Ballona Fiesta since 1948 is documented through the years.  
  • The Olympics of 1932 and 1984

The historical record of  various civic groups such as Chamber of Commerce, Optimists, Soroptimists, Lions Club and Woman’s Club is also represented here.
