Panorama City, Los Angeles, CA
Panorama City was the first planned community in the San Fernando Valley. A developer named Fritz Burns recognized that all the World War II veterans coming home from the war would need houses to live in, so he and another businessman Henry J. Kaiser, got together and founded Kaiser Community Homes. Most of the homes were bought with loans from the FHA or the G.I. Bill. At one time, Panorama City was next door to the largest General Motor assembly plant. But today, the plant has been turned into a vast shopping center named, of course, The Plant.
