July 4, 1935 — Every Fourth of July, Folks from miles around would "come home" to Newhall and participate in a Homecoming Celebration in the park next to (the fourth) Newhall School on Walnut Street.
Just before the kickoff of the annual parade, all of the participants would gather for a photograph by Thompson of Santa Monica. This is the 1935 version, courtesy of Bud Lutge by way of artist Paulette Tcherkassky.
