I think these photos are from an earlier standalone modern shop within J.W. Robinson, probably late 1920s. Based on the merchandise, geometric Art Deco furniture and decoration, it doesn't feel like 1934... Looks like they are trying to update their store to compete with Bullocks Wilshire!

The interiors for the 1934 rehabilitation are attributed to Dodd and Richards, but were really designed by Erle Webster, who partnered with another Dodd and Richards designer Adrian Wilson, to form Webster and Wilson in 1935. William Dodd was the artist in the Dodd and Richards partnership, and he died in 1930.

I've seen photos of the 1934 interiors, and they are not so Deco, more of the mid 30s streamlined modern. There was a wonderful nail salon, with wood panelled walls and mural by Millard Sheets in the lobby. Very luxurious. The nail station room looks like a Fred and Ginger set.

Earlier post (from way back on page 42!) showing the exterior transformation, 1934.

I imagine the interiors were transformed at this time as well.

Because so many foods were rationed, guards were on duty as Billy Wilder shot this scene for Double Indemnity with Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray to make sure no one walked off with the goods!

"NRA, We do our part."




6003 Olympic Boulevard, once home to Monterey Market and, many years later, Harvey's Guss Meat Co. Still standing but the original architectural flourishes are long gone. (What do you suppose was being broadcast from those speakers? The neighbors must have loved it."

?? Reference to Double Indemnity and the late Jerry's Market caused me to start looking for a photo of the delicatessen/grocery store that once operated at 360 N. Fairfax. Per CD, it was operated by W. Erskine in '36. http://rescarta.lapl.org:8080/ResCar...00003/00000002Building is currently a thrift store. Rumor has it that while still an open market, it served as a location for a grocery store in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid."

The 1910 Bombing of the L.A. Times Building
 
A while back, the L.A. Times ran a photo spread on the 1910 bombing of their building. Given the current interest here, maybe there is a clue or two in the old photos.

Here are a few:

While we're on Melrose, I thought we could move a few blocks east. Here's the northwest corner of Melrose & Western in 1925 (where else would you build the Melwest Apartments?). The main first floor tenant is the Huddleston Drug Co.

Obviously many buildings have already been torn down.
But where's 2nd Street then? And I can't find Clay Street on the map I have.

Perhaps it was mislabeled.

Love this one...never seen it before!

On New Year's Eve of 1999 for the arrival of 2000, many cities had spectacular displays to welcome in the New Year. Most with fireworks. I was quite disappointed that Los Angeles did not have any real organized citywide celebration of any kind. Being Hollywood, it was my quite simple idea that every block in Hollywood, and as many adjacent blocks, too, simply have a Hollywood search light (Kleig light) illuminate the skies at midnight. Perhaps a Hollywood celebrity or celebrities or TV series cast or... could have been attached to each lighted corner for an added attraction. All we got was a begrudging light of the Hollywood sign for a few seconds.

It turns out, too, that New Year's Eve that year was quite cloudy, cool and misty. The lights would've had a myriad of opprtunities to play off the mist, the rain, the clouds. Sort of like the above photo.

Alas.

Hmmm...great photo...you wonder that they were allowed to use any lights at all...but perhaps by 1944 they were feeling safer from any possible attack...

While looking for pictures of Melrose Avenue I came across a set of 47 pictures showing flooding in 1951. There are many commercial premises in the pictures, but I decided to concentrate on three of the residential properties.

The caption at the bottom of this one reads: "Mrs Phoebe Horn, 1518 Electric Ave[nue], Venice, 12-29-51."

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...951Floods1.jpg
USC Digital Library

Now partly hidden by plants and a fence, the house looks relatively unchanged.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...951Floods2.jpg
GSV

I've cropped the caption from this picture, but in its original form it was unreadable anyway. Once I'd mirrored the image and severely changed the levels it was just possible to make out: "Mrs Fred Pirie & friends on porch, 6577 2nd Ave[nue], 12-29-51." Initially I read the name as "Pine", but the 1956 CD lists Evelyn Josephine Pirie at 6577 2nd Avenue.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...951Floods3.jpg
USC Digital Library

Some brickwork has been added at the front, and a boxy extension at the rear, but Mrs Pirie's house is still there.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...951Floods4.jpg
GSV

One street west and Marjory Beggs' job of selling this house just got harder. The caption says: "Marooned house for sale, 6422 3rd Ave[nue], 12-29-51." Luckily, it looks like the water stopped in the garden.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...951Floods5.jpg
USC Digital Library

Just like the previous house, awnings now seem to be popular in this neighborhood. As far as I can tell, the houses on either side are also the same ones that appear in the picture above.
