Sherman Way, the main street of Owensmouth, California, in the teens or 1920s. The town was annexed into Los Angeles around then and changed its name to Canoga Park in 1931. The Canoga Owensmouth Historical Society will celebrate the town's centennial on Friday, March 30.
Notice that in those days, one could ride from Downtown Los Angeles all the way to Canoga Park on a Pacific Electric Red Car down the tracks on Sherman Way.
