This year, 2010, Atwater Village is celebrating its centennial. To help commemorate this important milestone Friends of Atwater Village (FAV), in partnership with Arcadia Publishing, is producing an Atwater Village photographic history book for the Images of America series.
In order to fully preserve Atwater’s history we are asking for help in obtaining old photographs, documents, newspaper articles, receipts or advertising from local businesses and any other historic information regarding Atwater Village between the years of 1900-2000. The book is a way to share and preserve your Atwater Village history and a great way to mark the Centennial of our neighborhood.
We hope that you could personally assist us in this preservation effort. We would appreciate any contribution of Atwater Village related photo and/or memorabilia you may have. The contribution would include your permission to duplicate and use the items for the book. Your treasured Atwater Village photo or other memorabilia would continue to be yours and remain in your position.
In addition, We are also asking for former and current residents or business owners to share their personal Atwater Village history. Please fill out the Atwater Village History
Questionnaire. The questionnaire is a way to share and preserve your Atwater Village history and a great way to mark the Centennial of our neighborhood.
