Thanks for flipping the photo, Beaudry, it makes a lot more sense now. (of course ) ha ha

Also, thanks for turning the Lankershim negative into a positive, Scott Charles.

I had forgotten about the town of Lankershim too, M P.


Here is an interesting map from 1890.


LRL-WC

Hmmm. .so why does the title include "and Water Co.'?


Here's a closer look.




Veeeery interesting.

And Lankershim with plots.


PBS-SoCal


'Lankershim' ceased to exist in 1927 when the name was changed to North Hollywood...No doubt to take advantage of the success of Hollywood on the other end of the Cahuenga Pass.

Of course there was a 'Toluca' too. (before the lake)

I ran across a snapshot today from the 1980s that piqued my interest because it reminded me of my former neighorhood of West Hollywood. . . .from eBay.


No, that isn't me.

What intrigues me is the old stone pillar(?) on the left edge of the photo. It's completely incongruous to the rest of the neighborhood.

I know that there used to be stone 'entranceways' on some city streets but I don't believe there were any in West Hollywood.

Help :whip

oops ha ha

Thanks Apollodorus and Martin Pal.


Update:

I just checked eBay. The negative sold for $22.50.



If it is Louise Brooks someone got a bargain.

Now about that tall metal flue.
.
I found what appears to be another photo of the "starlet" by checking the seller's sold listings which led
me to the Warner Hollywood Theatre, and The Larry Ceballos Revue.

It appears that she was indeed a dancer/chorus girl if the 2nd standing lady on the right side is her:

IMDB


It also appears to me that the tall metal flue is on the roof of the Warner Theatre based on this image:


Los Angeles Theatres



The 2 story building with the staircase, and some of the other buildings in the negative are still around
per the Google Steetview tour I took:

THE 'FLUE FLAPPER' MYSTERY LOCATION SOLVED

Wow! You 100% solved the location, vexedbystuff.

I took a closer at the neighboring building in the old negative and everything matches. . even the rear stairs.






Thanks for sticking with this mystery.

It's still there!
