The Diary of Vilma: The Lost History of the Clifton’s Cafeteria Camera Girls

Presented by Vilma’s daughters—Miriam Caldwell & Victoria Caldwell

If you live in Southern California, you’re familiar with Clifton’s Cafeteria. Did you know Clifton’s had a professional photo studio in the basement?  Miriam and Victoria recently discovered their mother’s diaries and many never-before-seen photos.  The diaries and photographs tell the lost Vintage L.A. story of the photo studio, and about a sassy, fiercely independent girl named Vilma.

We’re busy scheduling more of our 2nd Saturday Programs for 2018—Check back often for updates!
