'mystery' location

"Original 35MM Glass Slide Television Station KLAC LOS ANGELES CA. 1950'S"

I'm confused because I could only find information on KLAC Radio, not Television. Is anyone familiar with this station?



You can clearly see the word 'Television' beneath the call letter.

I happen upon this photograph of Sheriff Eugene W. Biscailuz on ebay earlier today.

It gives you a good look at at his office (there's even a stuffed deer's head!)

Here's what's written on the reverse. (it's a bit of a mystery)

I do volunteer work sorting donated books for our local Friends of the Library group. Last week this fell out of one of the donated books:

After I did a little research I found this picture of the establishment at 524 S. Spring Street on Pipedia.

Amazing the things that fall out of old books! I know I'm jumping the gun here but since I won't be near the computer tomorrow here's an advanced congratulations for all involved at this wonderful site for reaching a landmark 2,000 pages!

The longer I look at it, the more I think this is somewhere other than Los Angeles.

This picture appears to show Cannery Row in Monterey. There's a good history of the Carmel Canning Company (seen on the bridge in the background of the image above) at santacruztrains.com.

santacruztrains.com

The article says that Carmel Canning Co's packing house was destroyed in a fire in 1967, and another warehouse, which was damaged in the fire, was completely rebuilt in 1971. There are still four elevated conveyor bridges crossing Cannery Row, but I can't match any of the 1950s buildings (the earliest image at Historic Aerials is 1968). Here's a more recent view.

KLAC was channel 13 on the dial of your 12 inch black and white TV
There was a weekly show that featured Betty White and others- Del somebody? doing comedy

Don't know where this KLAC building was, but the image must be from before 1954 or so...the call letters were changed to KCOP that year...more here

Drive-in restaurant, Los Angeles, 1937 ???
 
This is one of the more striking finds I've come across lately but have no info on it other than "Drive-in restaurant, Los Angeles, 1937"

Can anybody provide more details?

https://martinturnbull.com/wp-conten...eles-1937.jpeg

It looks a bit like a modified version of Delores Drive in at Sunset & LaBrea.

Betty White and Del Moore. "Life With Elizabeth".

It was filmed in an old movie theater in Hollywood area. My Cub Scout Den went to see it filmed...early 1950s.

The typeface (BARBECUE, SANDWICHES, FOUNTAIN) matches one used by Carpenter's, by I haven't found a Carpenter's that matches the picture above. The one below is from Martin Turnbull's own site.

Martin, the title of this page on your site is Carpenter’s Drive-in restaurant, corner Sunset Blvd & Vine St, Hollywood, yet that looks like the Wilshire Professional Building in the background, so I think we're looking at the recently discussed Carpenter's at 667 S Western Avenue.

LA Modern Auctions has five Julius Shulman color prints of Palm Springs houses up: Sunnylands, Elrod, Dinah Shore, Bougain Villa [sic], Alexander Steel.

Estimate is two to three large apiece. For the benefit of the Palms Springs Art Museum.

Or you can stay right here and get your Julius Shulman pictures for free :).

I couldn't resist Julius Shulman pictures of another Richard Neutra house. As it turns out, e_r has already visited this location in post #31404. The vintage images in that post are from this photoset. It's "Job 134: Sinay (Joseph) House (Beverly Hills, Calif.), 1947". We've seen the first photo before.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...1.jpg~original

A view of the garden at the rear.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...2.jpg~original

I've picked a couple of interior shots, and omitted the one already posted by e_r. This one shows part of the kitchen.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...3.jpg~original

Large windows look out onto the balcony.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...4.jpg~original

Here's the same balcony viewed from outside.

http://i809.photobucket.com/albums/z...5.jpg~original

All from Getty Research Institute

The Joseph Sinay House can still be found at 1861 Heather Court, Beverly Hills. Here's the information available at ncmodernist.org:
Sold to Linda and Morris Halfon. Won first prize in House+Garden's 1947 Architectural Awards. Sold in 2001 to Mark Haddawy and Kathleen Rodriguez who still owned it as of 2014. Named in 2008 as a Los Angeles Historic Cultural Landmark.
The trees and closer neighbors make it difficult to get a "now" shot, but I just about managed.

For a change, I'm going to finish a Julius Shulman post with a bit of noir. According to 'Hollywood Death and Scandal Sites' by E J Fleming, aspiring 21-year-old actor Michael Boyer was found shot to death at the house in 1965.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was never 100% sure of that Carpenter's photo on my website (because of that building behind it) but I didn't know as much back in 2014 when I posted it as I do now (thanks, in part, to this terrific forum) so I've gone back and corrected that page.

I think EJ Fleming is a bit confused. Michael did die in '65, but both his parents died in '78.

They were married from 14 February 1934 until 24 August 1978 (her death) Boyer, distraught, killed himself two days later.

Nice house but I'm worried about that front walkway....if you see what I refer to.

The extended time when Pacific Ocean Park park sat abandoned sure made for some fascinating photos like this one from 1975:
