Hello, I’m wondering if you have any information on what is going to be built on the location that the American Red Cross (14717 Sherman Way) was at that is now a land lot?
I am sorry. I have not heard of anything.
Development of something residential doesn’t seem like it would happen in this fragile economy.
Your photos and blog are just beautiful. As a wedding and portrait photographer in San Jose, I know that it’s challenging photographing outstanding pictures. I’ll definitely comeback to keep checking your site.
Hi Andrew – Do you know what’s happening @ 14717 Sherman Way (site of the old Red Cross bldg)? They’ve finally demolished the old structure. Do you know who owns the land & what’s going up there?
I will investigate it and see if I can come up with any answers.
The author is a genius. Keep posting
I thought you were a genius. Now I’m certain of it. Tried FBF, but couldn’t find you on FB.
I was searching for info on the Van Nuys Choo Choo Restaurant and here I find someone else from Lincolnwood., Ill! I was born in Swedish Covenant Hospital and lived near a kiddieland park. Do you remember it or does anyone have any pics of it @ 1957-60? Such fun memories. Thank you!!
Yes, Kiddieland was near Devon and McCormick, running along the North Shore Sanitary Canal. It was torn down in the early 1970s and replaced with (what else?) stores.
Oh thank you so much for answering..sure wish someone had pics or old films…it would be great to jog my memory…I was very young.3 or 4.!
Here is a link for you to Kiddieland: <
Hello MM: I have some wonderful memories of the VN Choo Choo….
Van Nuys Choo Choo
Many baby boom kids celebrated birthdays at 6324 Van Nuys Boulevard, their burgers and milkshakes delivered on a miniature train. The restaurant closed in 1962, according to an auction notice in the L.A. Times.
I have seen that you have choose one of my photos, the one which shows Lisbon. Thank you for your interest.
L.A. must be a wonderful and amazing place.
Best regards from Spain,
Hi Andrew: When I was a little girl my parents took me to a small resturant for my birthday. I think it was on Van Nuys Blvd & I think it was called The Choo Choo. It was small, had a U shaped counter with a railroad/train around the counter. The burgers were put on the train & sent to where you sat at the counter. Do you know anything about this place? Would love to know.
My kindest regards, Jessica
Someone just posted a birthday picture from Van Nuys Choo Choo on the Facebook page Valley Relics.
Thank you David.
Andrew, I’m impressed about the quality of pictures of the website! I was trying to find some pictures of Van Nuys airport – it’s so beautiful in the dask – but could not find any. Have you ever shot the airport? Look forward to see if it comes to your mind.
We met yesterday at the shooting location on Sylmar and Kittridge. Good going on your blog.
Same here. Nice work, keep it up. My family does have lots of pix from years gone by, and I’ll try and find some to post that might be interesting to a wider audience. I was born at Van Nuys Receiving Hospital, just off VN Blvd. near Hatteras (no longer there, I believe) and grew up a few blocks away on Tobias Ave. I remember as a little kid in the mid-’50s walking with Mom down to Serber’s Market on VN Blvd near the old train tracks (now a bus lane, I believe) and watching the Bethlehem Star Parade on the same boulevard. The House of Sight & Sound on Victory between Vesper and VN Blvd. was my favorite place in town — I picked up the KHJ Boss 30 song list every Friday afternoon on my walk home from grade school. Great times!
I sent you a message, but it didn’t go through I think. Congrats on the awesome site Mr. Editor! I lived in Lincoln Square about 5 minutes from Lincolnwood. I was also born in Van Nuys at the Valley Presbyterian Hospital!
Great to hear from you and keep up the awesome work!
wow – very impressive. I just moved from Lincoln Square – about 3 minutes from Lincolnwood! This site looks like a full time project. What’s funny is I was born in Van Nuys at the Valley Presbyterian hospital I think it is called. Keep ‘em coming Mr. Editor!
