Per the LAPL: "The 'first' Santa Anita Racetrack was built on Elias Jackson ('Lucky') Baldwin's immense estate of 'Rancho Santa Anita' and opened on December 7, 1907, but closed just two years later after horse racing was banned in California due to an anti-gambling bill that became law. In 1933, Hollywood director Hal Roach and San Francisco dentist Dr. Charles Strub formed the Los Angeles Turf Club and raised funds to build a new track. Designed in an Art Deco style by Gordon B. Kaufman, the 'new' Santa Anita Park was opened on Tuesday, December 25, 1934."

December 7, 1931

Per the LAPL: "Aimee Semple McPherson Hutton and her husband, David L. Hutton at a 'Welcome Home' and 'Wedding' reception given by the members of her flock. The bride and groom were presented with many beautiful gifts. Photo shows Aimee receiving a silver service set. Photo dated: December 7, 1931.
