History and Lore of Burbank, California

This is a website about Burbank - "Beautiful Downtown Burbank" - California, the Media Center of the World. Here history, lore, images and personal stories are collected and stored for the enjoyment of current residents and expatriated Burbankers. Some of this information is fairly recent, some of it dates back to the late Nineteenth Century.

The important links are the ones at top; that's where you can find listings of all the content (and there's a lot). The various links on this page are highlights - a starting point. NOTE FOR RESEARCHERS: The best way to find a specific article or photo is to do a browser "find" on the What's New? page using the appropriate search term. Or try using the google window supplied below.

All three of our Burbank books are now available to order from amazon.com!
