I'm curious about the numbers along the bottom.....I thought they might be the other pages that the Palm Vue is mentioned but the ad is from a newspaper, so no.
.

Hey, they made the full page available for free! It's a list of motel amenities, i.e. FACILITY CODE:
1. Radio 2. TV 3. Air-Conditioned 4. Telephone
and so on. 10 is Swimming Pool.

This is quite interesting.



The house is on the southern boundry, and adjacent to, the Briar Summit preserve.

In fact, the property extends 'into' the Briar Summit Preserve.

Here's how the house looks today.

I hope someone here on NLA can uncover some information on James W. Brown. I briefly looked-but found nothing.


Thank you for posting the street view of the Hayes Motel, odinthor and Martin Pal. I was in a bit of a hurry yesterday afternoon.

Here's a callback to my very first post, where I was wondering whether the Sisters of Charity school was L-shaped or rectangular.

Flyingwedge came up with a rather amazing photo of the building, with one arm of the "L" obviously removed.

So here's what I was ultimately after. Below is a very famous photo, reportedly taken in 1863. The clearest version I could find was at the Huntington, which is zoomable. (My cropped version isn't good as possible)

So did I correctly identify the Sisters of Charity and Poundcake Hill?
I put this in a YouTube video, even though I'm not 100% sure.

... Circus wagons in Thousand Oaks.[1956]


A circus-centric seller on eBay has slides of old discarded circus wagons stored on an unnamed property in Thousand Oaks.

Judging by the weeds the wagons have been all but forgotten (& haven't been moved in years)




The slides are all labeled. . .

Are there any noirishers from the Thousand Oaks area :shrug: that knows where this place is/was located?









Here's one more. .... (I've been trying to decipher what it says on the wagon)

. . .more weeds.





There are others. .Here. .(includes vintage Chevron sign).......and Here...(KTLA circus wagon)

I grew up in TO(1960-1978), I was thinking they might be associated with Jungleland. The Oak treees won't be clue, there's a thousand of them.

Um, don't see a lake... The only lake around then with that much space around it was Lake Sherwood. I think the hills north of old TO match up much better. I think the pic was taken near Jungleland which is now the Center for Perforing Arts and City Hall. Here's a pic of those hills from about a 1/4 a mile east. This was taken during the 1974 Conejo Valley Days parade.

The other reason I think the area near Jungleland would make sense, is well, Jungleland.

From the Wikipedia entry for Jungleland...
Quote:

Jungleland USA was a private zoo, animal training facility, and animal theme park in Thousand Oaks, California, United States, on the current site of the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.[1] At its peak the facility encompassed 170 acres (69 ha).[2]

Louis Goebel created Jungleland in 1926 as a support facility for Hollywood. He had been employed at Universal Studios when the studio decided to close its animal facility. Five of the Universal Studio lions formed the nucleus of Goebel's collection.[3] The facility was originally called Goebel's Lion Farm and then Goebel's Wild Animal Farm.[4] Soon a wide variety of exotic animals were obtained, trained, and rented to the studios for use in films. The facility later became a theme park, opened to the public in 1929. Wild animal shows entertained thousands in the 1940s and 1950s. Mabel Stark, the "lady lion tamer", was featured in these shows; she also doubled for Mae West in the lion-taming scenes in the 1933 film I'm No Angel.[2] The zoo's residents included Leo the Lion, mascot of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio;[3] Mister Ed, the talking horse from the television show of the same name; Bimbo the elephant from the Circus Boy television series; and Tamba the chimpanzee, featured in the Jungle Jim movies and television series.[2]

Many TV and movie productions used the park's trained animals, and many productions were filmed there,[5] including Birth of a Nation, Tarzan,[4] Doctor Dolittle,[4] and The Adventures of Robin Hood. It was also featured prominently in an episode of the television show Route 66 (Season 2, Episode 31, "Hell Is Empty, All The Devils Are Here").

Ron Masak is a familiar name to me from TV in the 60's and 70's. (He's still working.) I looked up Love Thy Neighbor. IMDB said it started in the summer of 1973. Only 12 episodes were produced. Here's an interesting article about the show:

This is a great addition to NLA. I've been looking all over ebay and other sites for old circus photos....wagons too. A couple of famous clowns have lived in LA over the years. I remember a few on local TV back in the 1950s.

The DWP building doubles as LAPD headquarters on the TV show The Rookie.

I never knew the DWP building has a heliport on the roof.:shrug:

Martin Pal Sep 3, 2020 8:13 PM

And I never knew one to be referred to as a helistop. :shrug:

This blog has a copy of the "Tyrolian" photo, and what it says are other views of the house. But they don't resemble the photo you posted. I'm thinking this could be a "Winchester Mystery House" situation. One photo has an agave like the ones in your photo, only a few years older, with perhaps a radically altered house behind.

Here's where they unloaded the Lamborghini from a cargo ship in the opening shot of Rain Man. (or at least as close as I could get in Google Street View.) At 1:40, you can see the Vincent Thomas Bridge.

It's fairly difficult to post images on this site until you get the hang of things. :( Keep tryin' The Landscape.

If you have any questions just ask. :)
