Ooops! :redface:

Trust but verify? Wishful thinking?

Some of the confusion lies with the inversion of two digits: "7315" and "7351". Less explainable is the confusion between Beverly and Melrose. (They were both paved, had plenty of parking and intersect with La Brea? :shrug:)


Without an exhaustive study of Carolina Pines, there certainly is a 1942CD listing for it at 7315 Melrose.
http://i357.photobucket.com/albums/o...psxmuljh4d.jpg

The '27CD lists a Carolina Pines Tea Room at 4621 Melrose. The "Carolina" name was associated with 7315 Melrose as early as 1934 where the '34CD lists the address as the Carolina Pines Apts. (see pg 2452). Same in '36. The '56CD includes a listing for Carolina Pines at 7315, "#204." My memory tells me that the Carolina name also fronted 1518 N. La Brea. The '65CD has a listing for Carolina Pines Jr. at 525 Vermont Ave. (This is not meant to be a complete list.)

A photo or two might shed some light on how an apartment building was also a tea room or vice versa. One also wonders whether tea rooms served anything other than tea during the so-called roaring '20s. This may have also added confusion between the various restaurants/clubs at 7315 and 7351.

As for 7351 Beverly, there is no doubt this was called a nightclub (See 1940 permit). Cuckoo-Clock's Plantation cooking, in '28, may or may not have been a club masquerading as a restaurant. (Idle speculation).

It's amazing how long Carolina Pines lasted! The founder, Rose P. Satterfield was from North Carolina; she came out to LA from Texas c. 1923 and had the first tea room at Melrose & Normandie by 1924- that must be the 4621 address.

Then she'd moved up the block to 7315 by 1929.
http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/k...le/11-1929.jpg 11-1929 lat

In 1930 she brought a lawsuit against another restaurant using the similar name "Catalina Pines." She'd offered to sell its owners, Jacob & Mary Rosenberg, the Carolina Pines name for $150k (!) but they thought it was too steep. Catalina Pines seems to have gone away, anyway.

http://i281.photobucket.com/albums/k...e/12-31-29.jpg 12-31-1929

Rose died in December 1938 at age 63. 7315 Melrose was also her home address. The Carolina Pines there lived on until 1962.

Cherry Valley is one of the most rugged camps on the island due to its terrain and location. There were few trees and high canyon walls. Its low terrain is a cause for flooding at high tide. It was a hot and dusty place but the water was warm in the summer for swimming.

I remember Cherry Valley, they were a "rival" camp down the coast from EB. EB was a more wide open canyon, and not the steep canyon walls that CV had. Tons of Oaks in camp. Wild boar running thru camp overnight. Got to see a few buffalo from the herd that was taken over there in the silent film era. I may have a 50 yr patch from the camp floating around here someplace.

(1960's ) – View looking east on Ventura Boulevard showing GEMCO at 20801 Ventura Boulevard with ‘Chalk Hill’ in the distance. Just
up that hill were the restaurants Victoria Station and Charlie Brown. Across the street on the right is the Ridgewood Military Academy.

While looking for more pictures of Ventura Boulevard and the Ridgewood Military Academy, I turned to Historic Aerials. My first image is from 1947. For reference, Ventura Boulevard starts in the middle of the left side and rises towards the top-right corner. There only seems to be one development among the trees, so I'm guessing that's the military academy.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...1.jpg~original
Historic Aerials

By 1967, the area looks quite different. The Ventura Freeway runs just north of Ventura Boulevard, and the north/south route of DeSoto Avenue/Serrania Avenue has appeared on the far left. There's still no sign of the Gemco store from Martin Pal's picture, so that must have been built in the late-60s.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...2.jpg~original
Historic Aerials

The last image which still shows large areas of open space is this one from 1980.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...3.jpg~original
Historic Aerials

What caught my eye in the last two images is the dome roughly in the center. After a bit of digging, I found it was the Valley Music Theater. From Wikipedia:
"The Valley Music Theater was built in 1963, as a concrete shell structure, by pouring a concrete 'dome' over a rounded hill of soil, then excavating the soil away. The theater project was backed by entertainers Bob Hope and Art Linkletter, along with Cy Warner."
http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...4.jpg~original
sanfernandovalleyblog.blogspot.com

Also from Wikipedia:
"By 1966 the theater began to fall on hard times. Over the years, the fare changed from legitimate theater, to rock concerts, to boxing matches, until in 1980 it became a Jehovah's Witness Regional Assembly Hall. By 2004, the church had outgrown the facility and sold the property, which it had bought for $1 million, to the developer JPI for $30 million."
http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...5.jpg~original
sanfernandovalleyblog.blogspot.com

Finally from Wikipedia:
"JPI Development of Texas demolished the Valley Music Theater building in 2007, and planned to erect 350 condominiums on the 8.3 acre site. In April 2009, JPI defaulted on its loan of $41.8 million and the property was seized by Bank of America. The current owner is John Stanek of The Jefferson Project who has received preliminary approval May 27, 2011 for a mixed-use development consisting of retail shops and a maximum of 340 dwelling units. The project began in 2012, and remained under construction in 2013.

In 2014, the site at 20600 Ventura Blvd. now consists of an apartment complex and live + work lofts called "The Boulevard" than [sic] plans to open in Spring 2014."
Here's the site today (looking south). I was going to describe the new development as unattractive, but after looking at it with GSV, I've changed my mind ... to hideously ugly!

Our home camp was Lake Arrowhead Scout Camps aka Forest Lawn Scout Reservation ("where kids are dying to get in", we had that on the back of our staff shirts). In the summer of 96 we had to camp at CV, the only thing i really remember is that you had to do your swin test in the pacific, the food was excellent, and the wild bore hunt. Our troop would hike the island during spring break, we did that trip for about 5 years straight. Start off at Two Harbors, sleep at EB and then make our way to the airport and Avalon. One thing that i remember about EB was there was/is a grave...don't know of who but i know it freaked me out.

I don't need to tell any of you where today's Julius Shulman pictures were taken. This is "Job 5550: Wurdeman & Becket, Pan Pacific Auditorium (Los Angeles, Calif.),1942".
NB. I've cropped the top and bottom off of each of these images because they only showed sky or street. I've also omitted the first image as it was virtually identical to the second.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...1.jpg~original

Have we seen the Pan Pacific Theatre and bowling alley before? I found one mention of the theater, but no pictures. The arrows on the skating sign are pointing to the auditorium.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...2.jpg~original

The section in the middle with the curtains appears to have been a restaurant. I can read "Refreshments" on the left, and I think the main sign says "Top O'the Lane", but I can't find any other references to back this up.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...3.jpg~original

The last shot gives us a better look at the billboard. What a shame that none of these buildings survive.

That's a new one, I believe!

I know Cole Ave. -- 803 N. Cole Ave. is where the DMV is located.

No one''s ever said why some are labeled "Jr.'s" but probably just because they're more like diners and smaller than the multiple addressed original.

Our experts need to identify all the automobiles in this photo.

Update on the Sturges House: Did not sell at auction, now a "buy it now" for 2.75 Mil.

Highest price paid at the auction was for "Bedtime Story" by Richard Prince, which to the catalog writer looked like this:

"In 1987, Prince embarked on his seminal Monochromatic Jokes paintings–canvases that consist of corny and shopworn gags printed on vivid, uniformly colored backgrounds. Bedtime Story (1988) is an impressive example from the series. The painting resonates with association and references. The joke itself is a commentary on numerous stereotypical notions–about age, gender, holiday domesticity, and the nuclear family–but more significant is the way Prince has contextualized it. There is a coolness and detachment that removes the words from the realm of humor; they are writ small in a featureless typeface, overwhelmed by the surrounding color. Bedtime Story is a chimera: at once a Hard-Edge abstraction and a piece of Conceptualist art in which the aesthetic image has been replaced by the pure idea. There is no trace of the artist's hand in the painting–the words are both familiar and remote, like a Warhol Campbell's soup can. At once art and artifact, Bedtime Story represents the apex of appropriation art."

And to this philistine looked like a small block of green print on a large olive-drab background. De gustibus and all that jazz.

The objet d'art "Beetle," by Ferdinand Porsche (a Green 1971 VW owned by Jack Larson and James Bridges) went for 10 grand.

Cheers,

Earl

I thought sure I'd heard of the Bar of Music before on NLA, but I haven't located anything.

In January, BifRayRock, on post #32931, quoted a 1929 amusement map referencing a place on Beverly Blvd. called The Cuckoo Clock and later in the post writes:

In 1930, the Cuckoo Clock was located at 7351 Beverly Blvd. Later became the "Katinka" and "The Carolina Pines."
In his post, the source of the referenced photo is this post by Chuckaluck:



While Katinka was definitely at 7351 Beverly Blvd., I don't believe Carolina Pines ever was, because E_R's post was inquiring about
the ad with Carolina Pines at 7351 Melrose Ave. (4 short blocks west of La Brea) and Chuckaluck happened to veer off on another tangent
with Katinka at 7351 Beverly Blvd. and then BRR joined the two together. In researching the location, however, I discovered that
Martin Turnbull's Garden of Allah site, now has this incorrect information as well.

Here's an exterior of the club: (I left it large to notice the building next to it--the blade sign and also painted on the side--is the Spanish Kitchen,
it's history and mystery mentioned previously on NLA, but no older photos of it!)

It's said to have a circular bar and behind this bar was a stage with two pianos on it, which
looks to be drawn on this napkin from the place. Phone: WEbstr-7811

A little more about the Valley Music Theatre:

http://waterandpower.org/6%20Histori..._Orchestra.jpgLAPL

(1963) – View showing the Valley Symphony Orchestra on the site of the future Valley Theater Center at 20600 Ventura Boulevard,
on the south side of Ventura Blvd. between Winnetka and Canoga Aves. in Woodland Hills. Musical star Janet Blair, flanked by two
men, stands on a platform in the center. The photo was used to raise awareness (and money) for a new theater in the round,
which was completed the following year.

A couple interesting photos:

Woodland Hills Honorary Mayor, Buster Keaton "hitching a ride" in front of the Valley Music Theater. The little girl is Melody Holland,
the daughter of David Holland, who was the Director of Public Relations for the theater. This photo was taken in 1964 before the
opening of "The Sound of Music," the theatre's very first production. Mr. Keaton's last home was in Woodland Hills at 22612 Sylvan Street.

(Someone recalls seeing Shirley Booth do a theatre in the round production of "Come Back Little Sheba" there in the 60's. That would've been something to see.)

Michael R. Rusnak was born in 1915, and was from Beaver, Pennsylvania, and enlisted in the Army Air Corps
as a private in December, 1940, at Fort MacArthur, San Pedro, CA.

Judging from the shape of the wings he is wearing, Michael was most likely a bombardier.

Lt. Michael R. Rusnak, only three months and 20 days after this photo was taken, was involved in an accident
and killed on June 27th, 1943, in a B-25, serial number: B-25C 41-12493, along with Horace S. Bowen, Jr.,
a Sgt. from Pennsylvania, Daniel F. Hall, SS (Staff Sgt.?) from Alabama, Gilbert P. Johnson, the pilot, a
2Lt. from Illinois, Mourse A. Nielsen, a 2Lt. from California and Joseph E. Redmen, a Sgt. from UN.
-- (UN - ? - might stand for unknown as another entry of his was blank.)
-- (In the report, Michael Rusnak is listed as a 2nd Lieutenant.)

(Michael Rusnak's brother (or other relative) also from Beaver, PA, John G. Rusnak, was also KIA on January 10, 1945.)

Michael was assigned to the 377th Bombardment Squadron of the 309th Bombardment Group, based at
Columbia Army Air Base in South Carolina and was killed when his ship crashed about 18 miles East
of Sandersville, Georgia while being piloted by 2Lt. Gilbert P. Johnson. The Action Code 'KCRU' indicates that
there were 6 fatalities (K) and that the aircraft crashed (CR). The 'U' most likely stands for 'unknown' or an
'undetermined' reason, as in 'cause unknown'.

That's sad news :(

So was 'Carolina Pines' connected with 'Carolina Lanes' out at the airport? ( notice the same distinct style of lettering)

Hmmm...
I'm not sure how the ranking system works, but in three instances we have
him as a Corporal (Corp.) in the news clipping of 3-9-42.

In the Bar of Music photograph he's noted as a Lieutenant (Lt.) on 3-7-43.

Three months later on 6-27-43 in the accident report he's listed as a 2nd Lieutenant (2LT).

According to this wikipedia photo of USAAF ranks, though, that would be in reverse order of what they should be, if I'm not missing something.

http://www.uswarplanes.net/images/ranks.jpg

Also, they don't seem to have a Corp. in the Air Corps? :shrug:
