A house in the Weeks Poultry Community around 1927. In 1920, the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce requested that Charles Weeks come to the San Fernando Valley to establish a series of one-acre egg farms. The farms would be based on the successful formula Mr. Weeks developed in Palo Alto, Calif. The "poultry colony" Mr. Weeks developed into a small farming community, which actively engaged in uplifting the spirit of its members, and aided in the social, intellectual and artistic enlightenment of the region. Picture taken from his book, One Acre and Independence. 2 x 4 in.
