Alfred Dolge, a German-born industrialist, arrived in California sometime soon after departing New York in 1898. By 1904 he developed a manufacturing town called Dolgeville, which became Southern California's first experiment in city planning for the working class. Sorry but Dolgeville just does not have a classy ring to it. I went to Alhambra High just a few blocks from this area. Cheryl Tiegs, famous model, attended AHS.*

Evidently "Dolgeville" is now a part of Alhambra. Read all about old Dolge here and Cheryl below that. My sister knew Cheryl but I never met her.:

Looks like the massive Rosslyn Hotel sign was built around the chimney. -I've never noticed that before.

Speaking of Rosslyn, did Mr. Rosslyn also build this 4 story building and theater as well as the hotel and annex?
Perhaps we've covered this, but at the moment I can't recall.

Looks like you can see a movie AND get a tattoo. (notice the street lamp reflecting in the window over the marquee)

First you have to pawn some jewelry next door to afford the tattoo and the movie. The theater and stores are in the "old Rosslyn" - the 4-story building had been the Hotel Lindsey but had become the Rosslyn by 1893-ish when the Hart Brothers took it over (they started in the hotel biz as teenagers at Natick House with their dad, taking it over in 1894, and ran it and the Rosslyn until 1916), then about 1906 bought an adjacent 6-story hotel called the Lexington and annexed it as part of the Rosslyn. Then the brothers had the 1913 hotel built, and the 1923 annex.

Have you ever gazed upon an example of amazing Disney architecture and wondered where the inspiration came from for the Imagineers who created it? Today we’re lucky to hear the story and see actual photos of the building that was the inspiration for Hong Kong Disneyland’s Mystic Manor E-Ticket attraction The Victorian Mansion That Inspired WDI Imagineers. But where WDI Imagineers found the inspiration for it? Well, as you know Walt Disney Imagineering offices are in Glendale and believe it or not but the building which inspired for a big part Mystic Manor design was a "Sanitarium" of early last century located... in Glendale! Called the Glendale Sanitarium the building was in fact originally built in 1886 to be a hotel, the "Glendale Hotel", a 75-room Victorian structure on what is now Broadway Avenue.... a hotel which finally never opened! But you can see the hotel on this rare picture before the building was bought and transformed in a sanitarium. Have a look at the entrance located on the ground floor, in the center. As you can see it had two staircases, this will be transformed later when the hotel became the sanitarium with only one staircase and entrance.

Looks like the Newsoms designed the sanitarium. The Disney conglomeration looks like a little of this Newsom design, a little of that one.

The Carson house in Eureka was the first to come to mind:



second was the Sessions house in Angelino Heights:



The Glendale building as a sanitarium, with one staircase as you describe:

Just put together this great Panorama of Santa Monica Canyon in 1910. I think this is about where Chataqua hits the PCH. Be sure to pan right.

I also stumbled upon this outlandish idea today: The Malibu-Santa Monica Causeway







It was a planned 6 mile road off shore connecting man made islands to relieve traffic on the PCH. Here's a great site that tells all about it:

Too bad the city of Long Beach, California did what they've done to ruin their waterfront.

This isn't quite what I was expecting the Abbey Hotel to look like. It's better than I imagined for some reason.
The photograph appears to be from the 1970s/early 80s. Does anyone know how much longer it stood?

I have the page length set to the max, which gives me 25% more content per page. Hence 600 pages, not 750.

OK, I just found this. (but with no information) It looks like someone took it upon themselves to add clothing.


Time to hop in the google-mobile and find this beauty.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/santos/...n/photostream/

It looks like it might be in the same spot but facing a different direction.

I just came across this as well.

Is this an early vestige of the Southwest Museum? (museum is written on the card)

cardboard photograph/1890s

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1890s-Cardbo...item2ec8559fac

As most of you know, Garvanza was located immediately north of downtown in the area we know today as Highland Park.
The town was annexed by the City of Los Angeles in 1899.

The card also mentions Sycamore Grove. I don't know where that was exactly, but I've seen postcards of the place.
I'll try and dig one up.
