Does anyone recognize which bridge this is over the Arroyo-Seco Parkway?

I believe the car has been 'touched up'.....it looks almost cartoonish.

I don't remember seeing this very attractive photograph of Marilyn Monroe above Malibu.

I know most of you are still concentrating on Ms. Monroe's white turtleneck ;), but what roadside business (café?)
is this, with the two porthole-like windows?

Do you think Marilyn and her photographer hiked up from that white sports coupe with the door open?

Looks like Orange Grove, or maybe Fair Oaks...but im pretty sure its South Pasadena.

That looks very like the trestle (before it got upgraded to iron and steel) over Beverly Glen looking NW from Little Santa Monica. It came down in the 90s over a weekend night. I took the kids to watch (I live nearby). There were spectacular showers of sparks as the bridge was cut up. Memorable.

Now, not a trace:

Thanks too for the Robinson's Beverly Hills shots. My mother's favorite store.




Yes, e_r, that's the same (well, not quite the same or exactly in the same spot) oil well that's there now, next to BHHS (the building with the tower in the photo BRR posted). In that photo the camera was looking SE. In the one below NW:

And finally, the Civic Center.

Thanks Hoss,
up to now I had (we had...) only fragmentary views of Olive Street on Bunker Hill. Now I can see the entire street with a rather good preciseness. Those houses between 1st and 3rd Streets are a discovery.
Grand and Hope were better documented.

As I warned in my first Leonard Nadel post yesterday, the links to the images in the Getty Collection timeout, so you cannot hotlink to them - they will disappear within hours!

The picture shows the Orange Grove Avenue bridge as seen from Grand Avenue. Here's a color view of the same location, while the road was still under construction, from a Caltrans video called 1939 Arroyo Seco. I first used the video in post #16955.

The current GSV image is slightly blurred, so here's one from 2011.

That's Paradise Cove down there, Jim Rockford's trailer will end up in that parking lot just around the shoulder of the hill on the left. Malibu Beach is a couple of miles south.

Lt Columbo also visited Paradise Cove in the 1974 episode 'An Exercise in Fatality'. I believe this is the building with the portholes, although it has clearly been modified since Ms Monroe was there.

A look at the pier as Columbo interviews his suspect on the beach.

According to popspotsnyc.com, the cover of The Beach Boys' Surfin' Safari was photographed on the end of the beach under where Ms Monroe was standing. The link also has an image of the cover superimposed on a wider shot.

That's Robert Conrad coming out of the water--he took his shirt off oncreeen whenever he possibly could. It seems that Gretchen Corbett, an actress I always liked (and wonder where she's been) appeared in this episode of Columbo. She spent a lot of screen time in Paradise Cove-- she was also Rockford's girlfriend.

As "Beth Davenport" in Rockford Files... anyone recognize the background?

HossC May 25, 2015 3:20 PM

Gretchen Corbett also took her shirt off for that episode of Columbo. When Columbo first goes looking for Milo Janus (Robert Conrad), he finds his secretary, Jessica Conroy (Gretchen Corbett), in just a bikini.

Parked near a sign for 'Paradise Cove', people stand by their cars on the roadside and watch the smoke from a wildfire in Malibu, late 1940s or early 1950s.
The silver car in the center is either a 1949 or 1950 Nash Ambassador 4-door hardtop sedan.

While searching for more images of the Paradise Cove restaurant (the one with the two 'port-hole' windows), I came across this postcard/photograph.
I think we might have seen it before on NLA, but I'm not sure.

"The original 'Malibu Inn' was demolished in 1951, after the Pacific Coast Highway was rerouted inland, away from what is now Malibu Road.
The above photo is c.1935. You can just make out the name Art Jones under the sign advertising real estate. Jones built the Inn
and sold groceries and patent medicines."

A couple of priors on Paradise Cove from 2011:

inexplicably, continues to be the scourge of NLA.

I've had this for awhile in one of my old files.

If I remember correctly, the seller said this was located somewhere in Hollywood. I'm extra-curious about the small hotel next door.

Somewhere along the line we've visited Mosher's. On Cahuenga Blvd... but I couldn't find it on 'search'....

ethereal_reality May 25, 2015 5:59 PM

:previous: I searched as well.

All I came up with was the Moshers of Monrovia:
