It's always fun to find some obscure postcard and look up the address to see if the building still stands or to see what changes
have been made over the years.

While I was in the area I couldn't help but notice how this one street divides into two.

and a bit further south another street does a squiggly-like maneuver.

but I got a bigger surprise when I zoomed out.

Further east there's some truly elaborate street planning going on.

Does anyone know the history of this particular area and when it was initially laid out? (maybe we've talked about it, but I don't think so)
The layout is really impressive.

You could get Tacoma Brew on draught, but I can't read the name of the buffet. There's also a sign for the Hotel Lyle.

Detail of picture above.

By 1939 the building was shared by the Oasis Cafe and the Sinclair Wallpaper and Paint Co.
NB. I've lightened the original image to show the detail better.

More pictures for those who are interested:

USC has a couple more pictures which include the building on the corner. The first shows the front when it was Martindale's Buffet. They served Eastside beer.

View of Broadway looking north from Tenth Street (Olympic Boulevard), Los Angeles, ca.1929

The corner building isn't as clear on this one, but it's taken from a higher angle and shows extensive work being carried out on the street car tracks.

Thanks for the pics HossC - I especially love the 1939 shot.

e_r, I had never noticed the building before either. Its details were really interesting to me. They're almost exaggerated somehow, the shapes of the windows, the finials on the roof, etc.

Thanks Tetsu. And thanks GW for the update, I took the picture of the house because it looked very similar to the way the South Seas house looked(condition wise),and because cats we're everywhere.:runaway:

Does anyone know where this radio station was located in Glendale? I looked on Google Maps, but couldn't find anything that looked like the right spot.

1929 radio weather broadcasts help pilots
Posted By: Scott Harrison
Posted On: 12:16 a.m. | March 20, 2014
August 1929: New $20,000 Federal Airway radio station in Glendale with one of its 128-foot towers. Hourly weather reports are broadcast to pilots and airports.

This photo accompanied an article by Terrel DeLapp in the Aug. 4, 1929, Los Angeles Times reporting:

Like ships at sea plowing their way safely through fogged seas, guided by radio flashes from Federal short stations, airplanes winging their way above Southern California now are kept informed of weather conditions for 500 miles around by the cracking messages shot from the new mountain-side Glendale airway radio station of the United States Department of Commerce.

Every hour, night and day, as the minute hand of the clock points straight up, a giant 2000-watt generator whines in the Glendale radio lighthouse, one of four operators adjusts a 900-meter broadcasting set and sends his voice to planes and airdromes in this typical message:

“This is Airways Communication Station, Glendale, broadcasting Los Angeles to San Francisco airway weather information. It is now 1 p.m., local standard time.

“General conditions, Glendale, hazy; Saugus, clear; Lebec, clear; Livingstone, clear and light haze; Livermore, broken high clouds; Oakland, overcast; Mills Field, broken strata cumulus; Concord, broken overcast and haze.

“Ceilings unlimited at all stations except Oakland, 1200; Mills Field, 1400; Concord, 4000. Visibility unlimited at all stations except Glendale, three miles; Saugus and Bakersfield, five miles; Livingstone, six miles and Concord, eight miles.”

Thus the Pacific Coast flyer, either already in the air with his radio headset adjusted, or on the ground preparing to hop off on a cross-country flight, knows exactly what to expect in the way of weather and where to expect it. …

The local station has been on the air only a few days, and is the latest link in the chain of broadcasting points down the Pacific Coast from Seattle, with intermediate stations at Medford Or., and Oakland. These stations form the top of a “T” on the west coast, the main stem of the system spanning the nation from San Francisco to New York.

Thirty-five stations now are operating on the national hook-up to make the airways safe at a cost to the Department of Commerce of $700,000. …

Miles Field is now San Francisco International Airport.

That street grid layout is in my neck of the woods Montebello,and is bordered by Whittier Blvd to the north and Olympic Blvd to the south. I always wanted to know more on this development. I know at The Wells Brgo Bank on Whittier/Montebello Blvds they have a large mural deplicting The History of this area.

The third Women from the Right looks a little like "Anne Toth" of Black Dahlia fame she appeared in three films and disappeared into obscurity gone like the wind.

Fred, I think I may have found your site (no guarantees expressed or implied here!). It appears to be home to two antennas now. The location is on the north side of East Glenoaks Boulevard above the Scholl Canyon Golf Course.

The color photo was taken at Columbia Pictures between June and October 1943 and includes some of the New York models hired in support of Rita Hayworth for COVER GIRL, released in 1944.

Easily recognized are Betty Jane Hoss, Peggy Lloyd, Dusty Anderson, Susan Shaw, Anita Colby and Cecilia Meager among the group.

I saw Brian Wilson do a show at the current venue at this location about 5 years ago but didn't know it was the same actual stage area.

Here is the interior of the old 1932 Long Beach Municipal Auditorium [demolished in 1975]. As one can see its totally useless as a venue for today's theater. Note the folding chairs on the floor. It might have been useful for a political convention but its been many times replaced by more suitable sites.

This is how it looks today. The new design seems to be more people friendly...but some might disagree. At least the seating is facing the correct direction....the stage.

Signature expansive, gracious apartments with many built-ins, dressing rooms, etc plus huge individual storage rooms in the basement. And I do like a house or building up on a plinth (in this case thanks to the semi-underground parking):

I wish I had some good stories to go with it. […] Something must have happened there.

Entire post with additional photos is here:

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...5763&postcount

This is the only post I’ve seen about La Fontaine. I don’t know any good stories about it, but among its share of Hollywood residents were Bette Midler and Steve Martin, according to Roy Rogers Oldenkamp, who’s done walking tours of the area.

I do know that you can see this building in the Judy Garland version of A STAR IS BORN. I believe it was included in the version that was restored with footage excised from the roadshow version. There is a scene where James Mason comes to visit Judy Garland in her apartment on Crescent Heights across the street from the La Fontaine. As he exits her building he gets into his roadster parked on Crescent Heights and drives up the street. You can clearly see the La Fontaine as he drives by, through the intersection of Crescent Heights and Fountain and then up Crescent Heights toward Sunset Blvd.

I’ve been searching for something else in this area. During World War II a woman named Anne Lehr lived at 1284 N. Crescent Heights in what used to be the home of silent film star Dustin Farnham. She began to notice that servicemen were spending the nights in parks or bus benches and the like, either because of a lack of available rooms or they couldn’t afford them. There were places that catered to servicemen, but not places that were available to sleep/spend the night. With that in mind, she converted her place into the Hollywood Guild & Canteen, a place where servicemen could get a free meal and a clean bed and it opened in May of 1942. (Not to be confused with the Hollywood Canteen.) Servicemen called the place “Mom Lehr’s.” On average about 800 servicemen spent the night there and up to 1200 on the weekends. (It’s said the scenes where Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra spend the night in Hollywood in the film Anchors Aweigh were based on this place.

I first heard of this place in the book Hollywood: The First Hundred Years by Bruce Torrence. The only photos I’ve found of it are from his sources. There’s a vague “entrance” photo and some interior shots, dated 1943. Here are two of them.

http://hollywoodphotographs.com/photos/lrg/HGC-001.jpg

http://hollywoodphotographs.com/photos/lrg/HGC-004.jpg

I wondered exactly where this location is. Currently there is no 1284 address. Google maps indicates 1284 would be at the southeast corner of Crescent Heights and Fountain Ave. which is now addressed 1274 and that’s the probable location. The northeast corner across the street is a parking lot, at present, that by its appearance looks to have been built where another structure/building used to be.

The corner address (1274) is currently occupied by an apartment complex called The Crescent which is listed as built in 1985. It’s the same location as the Oleander Arms, where Judy Garland lived in the film, A Star is Born, that I mentioned above. I recall around the time the film had been restored and shown again (in 1983) that people were trying to save this building because of this significance. The Crescent was subsequently built here, but I recall that the Oleander Arms was not demolished, but “moved” to another location.

So far, I have not been able to find anything written about that “move” online. I also cannot find any source that tells me the Oleander Arms was built on the site of Mom Lehr’s/Dustin Farnham’s mansion. (Not to be confused with another Oleander Arms that was located in Hollywood.) The Bruce Torrence book, from 1978, indicates that the then current site of the mansion was occupied by a singles apartment building (Oleander Arms?).

Since I walk by this area often enough, I always keep wondering exactly where this was. My guess is that it’s the southeast corner of Crescent Heights and Fountain, but not sure that it isn’t across the street at the northeast corner.

I haven’t discovered any aerials of this area, which is a block or two below Sunset and Crescent Heights which is where the Garden of Allah and Schwab’s Drugstore are located. The postcard photo I found recently of Dustin Farnham’s mansion (from the 1920’s) doesn’t give me a clue as to which side of the street it was on, but if you compare it to the entrance photo of the Hollywood Guild and Canteen, above, you can see the sidewalks line up perfectly.

I can't help with the Oleander Arms, but here's an aerial from 1948 which shows the Dustin Farnum/Farnham house on the southeast corner of the intersection.

The house had already gone by 1952, but that aerial image is pretty blurry. This 1972 aerial shows the same replacement building(s).

Just for comparison, here's an up-to-date picture of the intersection. Most of the buildings from 1948 have been replaced by rectangular blocks with pools in the center, but a few survive.
