I was born in 1960 so I don't remember The New Steve Allen Show. (or for that matter the original Steve Allen Show)

I'll end with this sweet snapshot from Alison's site.

In front of 1228 Vine Street.

Around that time, 1961, I used to hang out at the Hollywood Playground's (now the Hollywood Recreation Center) public swimming pool and basketball courts. Afterwards, I would walk east on Lexington to the Baskin-Robbins on Vine and often see Steve Allen out on the street with a crowd around him doing live shots for his TV program. He used the Ranch Market and the Villa Elaine Apartments across the street as foils for his skits. Steve and his troupe, Louis Nye ("Hi-ho, Steverino"), Don Knotts, Tom Poston and Bill Dana were always around. Simpler times. Good memories.

Duperrault told the 1910 census that his profession was home builder and that he owned 434 Lake Ave. In 1916 he built shops at 3909 – 3911 S. Vermont Ave. and 3639 – 3641 S. Vermont Ave. The business address on the permits is 230 S. Soto St. which ran real estate ads in the Herald without addresses.

Los Angeles Herald, Volume XLII, Number 11, 14 November 1916

There's a hand-written arrow pointing to one of the windows. . .(perhaps a visitor pointing out the guest room)


A. Duperrault moved & moved & moved & moved.

So how do I decide which address is the correct one?


Easy.

I didn't realize until after I looked through the directories that the address is on the back!




Adolphe Duperrault hasn't previously appeared in the thread. Does anyone know who he was?


For search purposes:.....Adolphe Duperrault..... 434 Lake Street..... Los Angeles

BTW. The property sites given a build date of 1916 for the current 434 N Lake Street house. That's just five years after Mr Duperrault was there.

e_r, from my notes:

Zalvidea, Jose Maria (Padre) March 2, 1780, born at Bilbao, Spain; August 31, 1805, arrived in California at San Francisco; February 1, 1806, to August 31, 1806, assigned to Mission San Fernando Rey; December 19, 1806, to January 15, 1827, served at Mission San Gabriel; ca. 1821, noted by eventual centenarian Eulalia Perez at San Gabriel as treating the Indians very well, and much beloved; his enthusiastic efforts at grapevine cultivation at Mission San Gabriel, undertaken without the approval of his superiors, at length brought about his forced transfer to Mission San Juan Capistrano, thus March 4, 1826 (overlaps service at Mission San Gabriel) to November 26, 1842, at Mission San Juan Capistrano; as the years went on, increasingly mystical, and some thought him mad; “There were those who tried to brand him insane, but they had no basis in fact. They were just reacting to the Father’s habit of telling them the bitter truth about their abuses and disorderliness”; end of November?, 1842, to ca. the latter part of June, 1846 (when he died), served at Mission San Luis Rey.


By the way, those interested in California history as well as partying might wish to celebrate today September 17 as the (1776) day the San Francisco Presidio was established!

I understand a little French but the cursive script is quite illegible. Amazing we used to write this way. Sometimes I have trouble reading my old longhand. Good luck to any brave soul who wants to plunge into the cursive spaghetti. Amazed the post office was able to deliver these nearly every time.

Thanks for the translation, AlvaroLegido.

I was hoping the message would contain some intriguing clues but I see it was the usual generic postcard message.

& I appreciate the information on Zalvidea Street, odinthor.

At first I didn't realize you were talking about the street behind N. Lake Street.


google aerial


If the street number for the house, once it became apartments, was 446 1/2 - 448 1/2 (a duplex)


1950 Sanborn Map


Why so many garage spaces?

A total of six. (when I started this post I actually thought there were more than that)

& while I'm thanking people. .

Thanks for straightening the Duperrault house, Scott Charles. It looks great!

...A mystery parade showing a delegation of men wearing white suits and carrying white umbrellas!



eBay

The contingent makes me thinks of New Orleans or the Caribbean. It's possible the men are of African or African-American descent but it's a bit difficult to tell for sure.



the reverse.



.... "Swobd"

Looks like an early version of the Doo Dah Parade. But seriously, many labor organizations long ago had men in white suits carrying umbrellas in parades as a symbol of labor unity (workers under the umbrella/protection of a union). Here is another example from Indiana in the early 20th century--again men in white suits with umbrellas, in this case a baker's union; click on the photo in the link below and you see the umbrella men in white suits:

https://indianaalbum.pastperfectonli...D-933439182128

So, in all likelihood the parade in your photo is some sort of union parade, probably on Labor Day. I don't know what SWOBD means, but maybe it was some sort of millinery union (hatmakers). The word millinery is on the back of the postcard.
