The post that the fish is on is an old Fire Alarm/Police Call Box pedestal left over from days gone by. The meaning of the fish I don't know. The plaque looks like what Bergermiester Beer used on advertisements. Could be wrong however.

Thanks for this photo Bill!

Variety has published 20 of some heretofore unseen photos of Doris Day today, on what would have been her 98th Birthday. This weekend Julien's is having an auction of much of her belongings. Julien's was to have an exhibition of many items in Beverly Hills at their location that people could visit, but that didn't happen due to current circumstances, but much of their auction business is done online and that will still be occurring.

Does anyone know where this might be?

Doris Day sits on the porch of her Burbank, Calif. home in the early 1950's.

Her home from 1951 to 1955 was 131 South Valley Street in Burbank.


Extended between then and now.

Beautiful home until they placed the extended garage onto the front of the house. I imagine in Doris' day the garage was separate & placed in the back.
hmm. . . . there might have even been a porte cochere (scroll back up to Martin's first photo) but it's a bit difficult to tell.


P.S....The home is still beautiful just not as beautiful as it once was.

Agreed. The original house, when Doris lived there - very attractive & charming - like a movie-set house. The present owners surely enjoy the extra space, but I think the huge house now looks ungainly, out of proportion. Doris would not approve.

Just judging from the LA City Limits, Roads and Hills, I would say this is Route 2 Crossing from La Canada/Flintridge into Glendale. But this would only work if Glendale was considered Los Angeles back then which I doubt. However, the hills to the right seem correct, Route 2 was a major road back then and the buildings in Historic Aerials seem to fit. Right where Absolute Dental Care now is at 1809 Verdugo Blvd. Someone want to check for me?

The sign in this picture is identical to the one in e_r's post. Unfortunately, there's no info with it.

Glendale has been around since 1906, some parts in the Crescenta Valley were county before being annexed into Glendale, but not part of the City of LA.

The Crestmont Arms, Los Angeles [1929]

The location is just off a curve on Sunset Blvd. at 1519-1525 Griffith Park Blvd.

The building is some distance from the street so it's a bit difficult to get a good look. (the overgrown tree that has engulfed gate also hinders the view )

The gray building on the left is a gas station in the 1929 photograph.

I could've sworn we'd seen this location before, but like you, I couldn't find it on NLA. It was only today while watching a DVD that I remembered why it was familiar. It was one of the filming locations I identified from season 2 of 'CHiPs' a few years ago (it appears briefly in the episode 'Repo Man'). This is how the Crestmont Arms looked circa 1978.

I found this interesting bit of ephemera in an old file of mine.

Is anyone familiar with this school?

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/Jf87vi.jpg
b.a.barr file.....I hope I haven't posted this before.

Does anyone have a photograph of the Walt Whitman School School located at 515 S. Boyle Avenue?



The only time a Walt Whitman School has been mentioned on NLA was a reference to the fictional school in the TV show, Room 222.
The stand in for the fictional school was Los Angeles High School on Olympic.

...You can see the Room 222 post Here

RE: Walt Whitman School

Interesting information and photographs!

Thanks for your help, odinthor and Noir Noir. I appreciate it. :)

P.S. The top left photograph and the bottom middle photograph appears to show a different house unless this is the back of the house. (the turret is missing)

...or at the end of this one, link:

FYI: So I find that these videos start downtown at Figueroa and the last one is:

A mystery location.


Here's a c.1950 car accident photograph that I don't believe we have seen on NLA.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...921/lFQEnK.jpg
from losangelestheaters, but they don't know the location.

CAPTION:

"This c.1950 shot is in the Los Angeles Public Library collection Note the theatre signage beyond the car.
The Library's caption for the photo is not helpful in identitying the location."
....LOS ANGELES THEATRES


And here's the description over at LAPL.

"Automobile in the street after an accident coming out of a driveway, 1950's."....LAPL


Does anyone recognized the location?
