1900s - Corralling Rabbits
"A History of Burbank" states that "Jack rabbits were plentiful in the valley and destroyed many crops. The ranchers would get together periodically to roujnd up the rabbits in much the same manner as cowboys round up cattle. After the rabbits were 'corralled,' they were shot." Back of photo is stamped "This photograph is furnished on condition that whenever it is used credit will be given to Historical Collections: Security First National Bank." This image came from a collection of images donated by the Delores Palmer Estate. She was a BUSD employee for many years and authored the book "A History of Burbank."
