The opening of Topanga's road from the Valley to the beach

Description

On May 29, 1915, the Automobile Club of Southern California celebrated the opening of Topanga's road from the San Fernando Valley to the beach. "The dreamer of the dream," H. J. Whitley, was the host at a "mammoth barbecue to an assembly of 5,000 automobilists about midway of the canyon"... probably where the Topanga Center is today.
