Burbank (CA) Residential Area Ride, late 1940s

Originally found at archive.org: "Process plate, daytime, moving, shot from automobile, reverse angle of partially built-up street receding behind camera. Verdugo Avenue in Burbank, California." I get the conjectural late 1940s date from the Ford panel truck that appears.

The video starts at Magnolia and California. The Food Mart store in the shot is now the "Do it Center" home improvement store. They follow California to W. Clark Ave. and take a right on Clark (0:30) then a left on N. Lima St. (0:44) straight to W. Verdugo Ave., then take a right (1:29) toward Whitnall Hwy and the video stops there, at 1:48.

That vacant lot at 0:36 is now where Verdugo Park is located.

The next segment is the same route, only the camera angle is different.
