"It's the world's most famous valley," said Gelinas, noting that Marilyn Monroe and Robert Redford went to Van Nuys High School, and John Elway attended Granada Hills. "Why is it that the Valley was home to so many famous people for so many years? James Cagney's ranch was right down the street from here. Clark Gable's ranch was right down the street, in Chatsworth. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz were married in Canoga Park. You had Barbara Stanwyck and Jack Oakie's estate right up here in Northridge."

Gelinas noticed that many of the places from his childhood, from department stores to restaurants and amusement parks, were disappearing. "About 20 years ago, I took it upon myself to try and seek out my history and figure out what happened to all these wonderful establishments. Pieces of architecture and places I used to hang out, realizing that they're gone forever. So I started collecting things like a small photograph, a postcard, an annual."
