$20,000 worth of marijuana harvested, burned

Sept. 8, 1948: Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Dwight Smith drags a load of marijuana from a roadside patch in Rosemead. The plants were later burned.

A story in the next morning’s L.A. Times reported:

Marijuana valued at $20,000 went up in smoke yesterday — but not puff by puff.

An even dozen “trees” of the narcotic weed, some as high as 10 feet, were burned by Lt. Ray Huber and other members of the Sheriff’s narcotic
squad and Federal Agent George R. Davis. Apparently growing wild, the stuff was gathered from two places–beside the fence of a slaughterhouse at Rush St. and Loma Ave., Rosemead, and in an alley behind 6800 Alameda St.

Lt. Huber disclosed that the narcotic squad’s attention was first called to the Rosemead marijuana patch two weeks ago. Since then, he said, there has been a “stake-out” there to nab anyone who attempted to harvest it. When no suspicious characters appeared, it was decided to destroy it under Federal supervision as required by law.

This photo was published in the Sept. 9, 1948, Los Angeles Times.


Now strangely, if you look at the picture real close, everyone seems to be puffing on something.

I've posted a few screengrabs from that video over the past weeks (see here and here). I first discovered the video on archive.org - NB. the video on archive.org is higher quality, but mirrored left to right. They list it as "probably late 1940s", and I'd have to agree as it shows the Hotel Drake, which was the Hotel Christie until 1945 (see this LA Times article for more info on the Christie).

Go on man take a hit no ones looking. You have to wonder if the photographer just had a good sense of humor (or what?). I love it. Good one FredH.

Yes, this must be after WW II as it was illegal to take aerial movies like this during the war. If we could see a movie marquee we could nail it to the week.:);)

long gone hospital
 
I’m looking for some help with identifying the hospital my older brother was born at in 1937. It was a small place at the corner of Hoover and Santa Monica on the east side of Hollywood. USGS maps show it there at least through 1995 (or at least the building was still there). By a 2003 aerial the lot is bare. The only recollection I have was I think my mother said there was “American” in the name, but don’t bet any amount of money on that vague memory.
Any help with the name and photos would be GREAT….

The Pioneer Hospital once stood at 1021 N Hoover. It appears in the City Directories from 1936, 1938 and 1939, but had changed to its name to Park View Hospital by 1942. There is still a listing for the Park View Hospital in the 1987 CD, although Google Earth shows that the lot had been cleared by 1989.

So far I haven't found any photos of the hospital, although there is a 1957 news story about a pregnant woman being turned away:

Wikipedia has a page about the Park View Hospitals of America: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hospita...ion_of_America It doesn't appear to mention L.A. in the entry, but that might explain why your mother said the name had American in it. Like Hoss, I can't seem to find any photos of it. :???:

To tell the truth, I’m not sure if my mother ever told me “America” was part of the hospital name. Haha, perhaps that is something that my mind just dreamed up…After all she’s been gone for over 20 years. But the name Pioneer does ring a bell.
The irony is – from 1953 through 1956 while I attended what was then Thomas Star King Jr. High I would sometime walk down to the corner of Hoover and Santa Monica to catch the bus home. Waiting at the bus stop right in front of that little hospital. And yet as near as I can remember I had no idea that’s where my brother was born. The sad part of the irony is he died at the age of 19, in late 1956. I think it must have been many years later when mom mentioned he was born there and I connected the dots.
So many thanks to HossC and Moxie for your time. I’m writing a family history and this detail just came to mind.

The Pioneer/Park View hospital remains a mystery, but I stumbled upon this medical facility, somehow, it seems, previously unseen here.


The LAPL caption: "An aerial view of the Osteopathic Sanitarium Hospital, located at 235 N. Hoover Street. The photograph shows a long, 5-story brick building with numerous windows throughout, a large rooftop patio, and lush gardens in front. On its left, the sloping hill has building debris scattered about, and the right and rear show numerous homes and streets. The hospital is now known as Temple Community Hospital."


Still there:

I wonder if the Osteopathic College was located in the same building as the Osteopathic Hospital? (shown above in GW's post)

I've noticed in old directories from 1893 and 1915 several individuals listed as President or other organizational functionaries of a College of Osteopathic Physicians; could that be a professional society rather than a teaching college? That might account for it.

In the 1909 CD it looks like the Pacific College of Osteopathy was on Mission Road, while the Hospital was nearby on S Workman. There was also the Los Angeles College of Osteopathy at 318 Clay.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...steopathy1.jpg
rescarta.lapl.org

The college isn't labeled on the 1910 Baist map, but it is shown at the corner of Mission and Daly on the 1914 and 1921 maps. Daly Street has now been realigned to meet Marengo, and the college site is now under the Golden State Freeway.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...steopathy2.jpg
www.historicmapworks.com

The 1915 CD states that both college listed in the 1909 CD have merged with the College of Osteopthic Physicians and Surgeons at 321 S Hill.

The Osteopathic Sanitarium Hospital posted earlier by GW gets a special mention on the introduction page of the 1932 CD.
