Opal 7/4/1932

Fire-affected 3½x4½-inch print shows Opal Mayhue Houghton astride a white horse named Cimarron in the Happy Valley section of Newhall. The print is undated, but the photograph was made at the same time and in the same location as this photo, which is dated July 4, 1932. (The other photo also provides the horse's name but doesn't say whose it is.)

The pen and ink (probably fountain pen) figure in the middle is the outline of the National Automobile Club logo. See other photo.

The image was out of focus and the print was underdeveloped when it was made. Handriting on back reads: "Note W.S. Hart's res[idence] in the dim distance — on top of hill." It's even dimmer in the original scan.

Opal was the daughter of Newhall commercial property owner William Mayhue (Pallie) and mother of Betty Pember, 1980 SCV Woman of the Year.

The same day this photograph was made, Opal appeared in another photo of Newhall oldtimers who gathered for the Fourth of July "Homecoming" celebration at Newhall (School) Park.
