Thanks Noir_Noir, Hoss and Fw! My mind is (temporarily) at ease.

I can't remember the last time we went over 36 hours between posts, so let's set the ball rolling again with a stabbing and suicide. As you'll see from the newspaper article after the photos, USC's description is a little misleading:
Stabbing and suicide, 19 April 1954. Edgar Byrd (nurse); Robert L. Newstetter (victim) -- 33 years; Officer Robert Boyle; John Leppold (officer).; Caption slip reads: "Photographer: Snow. Date: 1954-04-19. Reporter: Seifer. Assignment: Cop stabbing & dead stabber (Stabs cop then commits suicide). 3/4: Nurse Edgar Byrd bending over stab victim Officer Robert L. Newstetter, 33, at Georgia street. 51/52: Suicide note on dash. 5/6: Sheriff's officer Robt. Boyle holding suicide hose. 25/26: Officers Robt. Boyle & John Leppold looking thru window at body".

All from USC Digital Library

The car looks like a 1949 Chrysler Windsor Coupe.

Here's the report from the April 20, 1954 edition of the LAT. Note that the dead man in the pictures is actually Albert Schier (not even mentioned in USC's description). The article also includes the scratched note on the dash seen in the second image, and says that Detective Newstetter was treated at the recently featured Georgia Street Receiving Hospital.

Some months back this forum did a wonderful job in locating the Garry Winogrand sailor-in-the-mist walking over the bridge photo as Los Angeles, and not NYC as it is commonly misidentified...here's another Winogrand L.A. picture, dated Jan. 1960.

Always appreciate seeing another Winogrand although in this case the police officer looks almost otherworldly, jarringly unlike anyone else in frame. He could nearly be mistaken for a window mannequin from May Co.

January 22, 1956: The Los Angeles Police Department and local media broadcast one of the very first “SigAlerts” following the worst train wreck in city history.

The alert was triggered by the accident of a Santa Fe passenger train which had departed Union Station and derailed at Redondo Junction, southwest of Boyle Heights. The accident killed 30 people and injured 117.

It was the first major disaster in the Los Angeles area covered by live television.

The date for the post you've quoted is Aug 6, 2015 ... so the item would be long gone from Ebay.

OLeander5-5225 Jan 23, 2019 2:11 AM

I just saw that..Thanks anyway!

An iconic example of the Art Moderne style of architecture, a fortress-like castle for a royal Indian family.

The home still stands at the corner of Heliotrope Drive and Santa Clara Avenue in Santa Ana. (now owned by Dr. Quynh Kieu)

The house, built as a sanctuary for his family by the Maharajah of Indore as World War II approached, boasts the classic features of an Art Moderne home
– horizontal lines, steel case windows and a flat roof.

A leaking roof above the living room of Dr. Quynh Kieu's Santa Ana home has damaged the couches with dripping water. The original architecture of the house includes a flat roof that often leaks.

I DON'T KNOW WHY THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE NOT SHOWING. I'M TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT.

Does anyone else find this image mildly terrifying? Can someone contact this fine lady (who is still with us!) and ask what the "Gooby" is all about?

EDIT: Folks, I think he's working on this anew...

ethereal_reality Jan 24, 2019 4:22 AM

That's what I am using H S, but they're not showing up in my post. :(

I uploaded the photos, in question, today at my mom's house.
The photos loaded very slowly (the process is quite fast at my apartment)...then imageshack says "there was a problem with the upload"...
yet, the photographs show up in my imageshack album...but they don't show up in my post.
My older photos on imageshack still show up. (I tried one)
______________


Yes, I need to empty my in-box.....but I don't what to lose the messages. I've already winnowed out alot of them.
TRUTH BE TOLD (I feel sentimental about many of my old messages) Yes, I'm weird.

p.s. Thanks for your help Handsome Stranger.

Changing my post to be less annoying.

Today I learned that George Herriman, the creator of Krazy Kat, lived at 1617 North Sierra Bonita Ave from 1922 to 1930. The house still stands and it's adorable.

I must make a trek over there to admire it in person, and maybe get a better photo. I'm a big fan of Herriman's work.

In the late 1940s, T.V. station KTLA covered on live T.V. the attempted rescue of a child from a well. I believe the child was named Cathy Fiscus or something like that. Unfortunately, the child didn't make it. Maybe not a major disaster, but a tragic incident. This may have been the first T.V. live feed of a news story from the field, outside of a studio. Maybe somebody can post more info on this case. As a kid, I remember watching the failure of the Baldwin Hills Dam on KTLA, I believe in 1963. Houses were carried down the hill.

I feel the same about my old messages, e_r. Every time my inbox is getting full, I archive the oldest ones as text files (I've never tried the other options). It's not as convenient as having them in your inbox, but at least I have a searchable record.

BTW I looked at the links to your pictures of the Maharajah's house, and they showed fine individually. When I returned to the forum and refreshed the page, all the images appeared. Are other people seeing them now?

I see them now.
