I like their Victorian Revival taste in depots, but there is no mention of it in this interesting history of the property--a good number of pics:

Have we seen this house before on NLA??

There are loads of other pics via google

Peter Stackpole (1913-1997) was one of four staff photographers hired on at Life Magazine when publication began in 1936...based in Los Angeles, he was responsible for 26 Life covers, most of these were of film stars....a representative sampling of his L.A. work....

Dona (pronounced "dough-nuh") Drake, an actress, at her home in 1942...I'd never heard of her, turns out '42 was her big year as she appeared in the Hope/Crosby vehicle "Road to Morroco" (apparently, she hooked up with Bob during the shoot)...she had to hide her African-American heritage to preserve her viability in the industry.

One of the blackboard listings refers to a lot in a "restricted" tract, this was a reference to the so-called "race restrictions", common to subdivisions of the time, which limited sales to Caucasians...such restrictions where found to be unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1948.

Wow! Looks like a few WW2 vets hit the jackpot here. Good for them.

'mystery' barn / 'mystery' people

I don't believe the building is an actual barn but I don't know how else to describe it. It almost looks like a crib..but it isn't that either. :shrug:
I have NO idea why there are barrels on the roof...and I'm especially intrigued by the flag.


I'm hoping one of you sleuths can make out what it says on the flag.

Brilliant sleuthing indeed ... really ethereal. :worship:



But that sure was a long old walk to their front doors from Minnesota for Barbara and Zeppo when they hopped off the train. :D

Perfecting the new finer Brew 102.

Maier Beer is the best.
At least until 1972."

Martin, you are the noirish poet laureate.

A sampler has to with mining-- where ore was inspected for quality and a price determined. So I think the flag might say "Free Ore [testing]" or something like that. I guess the barrels store water for washing down the samples??

CityBoyDoug Jun 9, 2019 2:02 PM

Interesting but where exactly was this located?

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...922/ouCQfs.jpg

I do not see it in any old photos. Maybe I missed it.

It's a joke.

Here's an interesting Los Angeles snapshot from the 'flapper' era. [1928]

"DORTHY DEAN. A young flame of mine."....note the O was left out of Dorothy.




I located a couple of clues.

and in the 1937 city directory.

Could she be the Dorothy Dean that appears in the snapshot? :shrug:

According to Wikipedia, Dorothy Dean (real name: Dorothy Simpson, before she married Lloyd Bridges) was born in 1915, so in 1928 she would be only 13 years old. And only a child of 6 at the time of Finders Keepers.

Brew 102
 
No...they didn't just brew crappy beer. They also brewed crappy malt liquor and crappy draft beer.
