It appears that he did move the store rather than having more than one at the same time. I did not find a directory listing for the Highland address. There is an online article which says that when he came to California he operated his business under "Hollywood Novelty and Leather Shop. This may have been the address on Highland but I cannot find a listing for that specifically. By 1926 he had changed the name to Edward H. Bohlin, Inc.

How about the Hollywood Saddlery, Ltd on Wilcox, just a couple doors south of Hollywood Boulevard? "Everything for the horse and rider." One of my favorite shops when Hollywood was civilized. Dutch door entrance.

Incredible amount of information on the Earl Carroll Theatre!!! I have just now realized that I have been
in that amazing place--I saw "Hair" there in 1970 when it was the Aquarius. I wish I had known then
what I know now about it.

You are quite welcome, LA Kitty Kat! Meow! It's great that you got to
see the first L.A. production and that Los Angeles cast of HAIR there! What was that like in that time?

If you are ever interested, The Best of the Smothers Brothers Season 3 DVD release has an episode which features "The West Coast Cast of Hair." It was aired December 8, 1968, and the performance features the co-creators of the musical, James Rado and Gerome Ragni, along with Jennifer Warren, who later went by her original name Jennifer Warnes. The cast sings a series of songs from the show including Aquarius, Let the Sun Shine In, which is actually titled "The Flesh Failures" and also the title tune, Hair. The "Hair" number included the hot-button lyrics that the Cowsills top-40 cover did not. The notes on the DVD say "While this particular hour was being prepared, the fledgling newsmagazine 60 MINUTES visited and shot some footage, and film of the casual early rehearsal of the closing production number from that show is included in the bonus material."

That's a great photo of the Aquarius Theatre you posted E_R!

I was here in 1978 when Zoot Suit played at the Aquarius. I was aware of it, but I didn't see it then. :shrug: A friend of mine who went on the tour saw that production there. This is what he would've seen.

Some of the film version was filmed at the Aquarius/Earl Carroll lobby.

I only wish I had a better memory of that night. I was just out of high school and it was my first venture to Hollywood. I slightly remember entering the theatre, and I remember the part of the play when some cast members were partially naked! I really wish I could remember details, but they're gone...

My love of architecture had not yet developed enough to be impressed by my surroundings.

Re: Earl Carroll Vanities/Kaleidoscope/Aquarius Theater:

My mom and dad would go to the Earl Carroll Vanities. The Queen For A Day Show took place there, and my aunt was chosen as Queen For A Day once.

I saw Hair there, and a show with The Flying Burrito Brothers and Bread, plus some other shows that escape me - hey, it was the ‘60s.

The psychedelic painting on the building was done by the Dutch artists/designers The Fool - who designed the mural on The Beatles Apple Boutique in London, painted Eric Clapton’s Cream-era guitar, and who had a clothing boutique in LA in the ‘60s painted in that fashion, among other things.

As to other stuff, I saw Love at The Hullabaloo, formerly Ciro’s, on Sunset Strip. Mom and dad also went to the Ken Murray movie star home movie shows. And went to Johnny Otis’s Club Alabam and Barrelhouse, and LA jazz clubs, after WWII and before I was born.

Mom - who lived in South Central from the early ‘30s to the late ‘60s - also told me about her Japanese friends and neighbors who were sent away.

Thanks for the address location on Gladys. I lived at 635 Gladys when I was a kid. Anyway This is my Google map location for all nations 810 East 6th Street- this is where it was. There is now park at E 6th street and Gladys.[IMG]https://preview.ibb.co/f1w6Cc/810_east_6th_street.jpg[/IMG] The main Building was on 6th street corner with Gladys Ave. It appears they used some houses that were located behind the main building across the alley on Gladys Ave for employee housing and for the clinic extension.https://preview.ibb.co/kYqcJH/all_na...ladys_1939.jpg

Thanks, e_r! I was trying to figure that out myself. "Hmmm . . . a car battery?" was my first thought, which on reflection seemed unlikely. I think it's my camera case.

Or maybe an accordion?

Thanks, Slauson Slim. When someone was chosen Queen for a Day, what kind of prizes did they get? I'm assuming they got something. I never wondered before how they got chosen, either, in the Queen competition.

We're all like that! If I had known about that theatre I'd have gone there to see Zoot Suit at least. I found out that Zoot Suit had a two week or ten day premiere downtown at the Mark Taper Forum before it transferred to the Aquarius Theatre.

Slauson Slim Mar 1, 2018 7:47 PM

On Queen for a day my aunt received a washing machine. Contestants were asked what they needed most, and described the difficulties they were facing. Winners were chosen by audience applause.

She wasn't the only television personality in our family - I was on the Bill Stulla Engineer Bill show for my fifth birthday.

You're famous Slim!

Some interesting info on Engineer Bill:

Bill Stulla hosted a radio variety series Bill Stulla's Parlor Party on local radio and TV in L.A. until 1954 when KHJ (now known as KCAL) TV Channel 9
mentioned that they were holding auditions for a new kids series titled Ranger Ed, a forgettable rip off of KTTV 11's Lunch With Sheriff John.

Stulla's wife insisted that her husband audition for the show - he was interested but not as a copy of Mr. Rovick's lawman character. "I've got an idea for a better show.
It's a railroad show," Mr. Stulla explained to the L.A. Times."I want to be an engineer and run trains and play cartoons ,because I knew that the station had bought some cartoons."

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/6...922/SCRFgf.jpg
screengrab

Accepting his concept the station execs at KHJ TV hired Stulla and in late 1954 The Cartoon Express With Engineer Bill went on the air as a weekday evening kids wraparound program set against the backdrop of a roundhouse. Each night Mr. Stulla's kindly, old train man would interview two kids, a boy and girl, who would send in their model toy trains to be exhibited on the program. He would also try to bring out the kids' personalities in his impromptu conversations with the youngsters.

Stulla would also play games with the kids in the studio, engage them in craftmaking, hobbies, train lore and interview guest performers and personalities in between the reruns of Gumby puppet films, Spunky & Tadpole, Q. T. Hush, Col. Bleep TV cartoons and Superman movie cartoons. The show even had it's own theme song "Who's that coming down the track, who's that puffing smoke so black? Who's at the throttled? It's Engineer Bill!"


Television's first Chug-A-Lug game.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/6...923/XASR1N.jpghttps://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/6...922/pacc33.jpg
I added the COLOR :puffs out chest:

Stulla was also able to instill good values in his viewers and studio audiences by having them promise to do the right thing and encourage his little train "Little Mo" to move up the hill
(a model trainer was shown moving slowly up a small scale track in a pre filmed segment ala "The Little Engine That Could". He got the kids to drink their MILK via an on camera game
called "Red Light/ Green Light" where the kids at home would watch "Engineer Bill" and his in studio guests drink a glass of Cow Juice, they'd drink when a superimposed image
of a green signal light was seen on screen, they'd stop when a Red signal light was shown on screen.
