East Los Angeles noir
 
On July 20, 1946, the body of a pretty young mother named Angelina Loya was found in a vacant lot at 1026 E. Olympic Blvd. She had been severely beaten, stabbed and disembowled. Angelina had been out that night, with friends, dancing at the Avodon Ballroom.

Her friends testified that Angelina had left the club with a young man named Peter Hernandez, who had volunteered to escort her home.

Police questioned Peter Hernandez who told them that he had started walking her home but when he stapped to talk to someone who had called his name, she disappeared. The police didn't buy it. Further investigation showed showed blood residue on his hands and clothes. They also found a necktie with blood spots soaking in solvent at his home.

Turns out Peter was a butcher by trade (and in other ways obviously).

Peter was eventually charged, tried, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. For details on the murder and investigation, see the attached.

Ice burns
 
The Hollywood Polar Palace ice skating rink, at Melrose and Van Ness, burns down on May 16, 1963. Sound stages on a neighboring studio lot were also damaged.

Call me crazy, but I think the water hose would be more effective spraying the flames instead of the pavement.

Railroad strike
 
1951 Railroad Strike

http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/9...ars1951str.jpg
Stranded by a labor strike, a freight train occupies the Southern Pacific Railroad mainline in Taylor Yard on San Fernando Road on Monday, February 5, 1951. 90% of SP's 400 available switchmen refused to report in during the crippling nationwide strike. However, Santa Fe and Union Pacific Railroads reported switching operations were nearly normal despite the wage-hour dispute.

Dispute settled strike ends.

I love the noirish quality of this photo

Switchman G. J. Gould signals one of the first trains leaving Southern Pacific's Taylor Yard on Wednesday, February 7, 1951, after workers voted not to stay "sick." In 2006, the former railroad yard became the Los Angeles State Historic Park.

Something you guys might be interested in is the video game L.A. Noire.

It has a pretty accurate re-creation of 1947 Los Angeles. I have been playing it for the last month or so and have been able to be inside the old hall of records buildings, central library, etc.
Also, it is fun to see 3rd and Hill St as an actual HILL! I've walked past Angel's Flight, and even driven through Old Hollywood past Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

I have always been fascinated with Los Angeles and have lived here my entire life.

THANK YOU everyone for this amazing forum post. I've got about 27 pages into it so far.

Thanks to Fab Fifties Fan for his recent posts...fascinating real-life crime photos! And I'm ashamed to say I'd never heard of The Marsden/Bethany Towers, which is indeed a gorgeous building. I really need to investigate the east side of Hollywood further.

MikeD asked about locations for "Follow Me Quietly." I managed to track down a DVD and watched it...not a bad little B picture...and I took the opportunity to grab frames of the location shoots. I hope some of the resident experts can identify some of these locations.

Heh, I somehow doubt that this is a "gay" club in the sense the word is used today. (If you look closely, that's a scantily clad girl on the facade in back of the man with the black hat.) In fact, with the vice laws as they were in L.A. back then, a club that openly advertised for the patronage of homosexual men would doubtless have been busted and closed down immediately.

Aliso Village was leveled in 1999 to make way for the new housing authority project Pueblo del Sol. Aliso Village consisted mostly of apartment buildings, Pueblo del Sol's housing stock is largely detached and semi-detached single family houses. The project has been criticized for reducing the number of units at the site by 30%, at a time when Los Angeles suffers a severe shortage of affordable housing.

these two images are on figueroa between 12th and pico, which at the time was the used car dealership mega location in los angeles. (now it's the staples center)

Kelly Kar Co. was probably the most formidable used car dealer in the country. they developed the used car bible, the kelly blue book in 1926, (which is still how you get screwed today on your trade-in value), and got out of the actual business of selling used cars to focus entirely on the blue book in 1962.

here's a view from the 30's looking south on figueroa from 12th street. if you look closely, you can see the Kelly Kar sign up the street

Thank you for your wealth of knowledge gsjansen! Very interesting. I noticed that the date on your pic of Aliso Village is 1947 and the date on the pic I posted is 1951. Was the Aliso Village project done in phases or was the date on the Boyle Heights pic wrong? (The latter wouldn't surprise me at all!)

I am chuckling about the Hollywood Inn. I have probably walked or driven by it a gazillion times and never bothered to look up. Typical.

Villa Carlotta
 
Now for my personal favorite building, the Villa Carlotta apartments at 5959 Franklin Ave. I lived there when I was a student at FIDM in 1975-76. I absolutely fell in love with the building and all of its historical charm which is still in tact because it has never been "modernized".

Villa Carlotta was built in 1926 as residences for the staff of the Chateau Elysee, which is catty corner from the Carlotta. It very quickly became a popular residence for Hollywood newbies when they first moved to the area. Former residents have included George Cukor, Adolphe Menjou, Louella Parsons (who lived there for many years), Edward G. Robinson, Marion Davies and David O. Selznick.

Many of the furnishings, currently in the lobby and public areas, are from 20th Century Fox movie sets.

Just found this on wikipedia:
Guests invariably arrived by train, the mainline Santa Fe which stopped at Raymond Station at the bottom of the hill. Many had private cars that would park on the side spur near the station. All guests were ferried by a horse-drawn bus to the hotel at the top of the hill. Much to the dismay of many guests, the old station closed down in deference to a newer station built up the tracks closer to downtown Pasadena. Guests were then forced to take an auto bus the extra distance to the hotel.
