Great images (though, in the dept. of nitpicking, it's a '61 Lincoln...)-- that old airport sign reminds me of a scene-setting shot seen from time to time in Perry Mason episodes...in which it would be referred to as "International Airport"--no article "the" ("Della is picking us up at International Airport")--


Here, coincidentally, are Perry & Della in his '61/2/or 3 Lincoln convertible...

The serene scene of the Tingley boy's kidnapping:

The photo with the boy in the trunk was taken in front of Barris Kustom on Riverside, just east of Lankershim.

DeMille film
There is a museum in town nearby which has some of the pieces that have been dug up out of the sand and pictures and things from the filming of the production. Very interesting.

Yep, that's next door to the gas station the young perps robbed and around the corner from the Gattis residence where they'd fled (presumably)on foot and were taken into custody.

It's great that the Times report was so chock-a-block with addresses. I looked 'em all up.

I flew through LAX in 1971, when it was still pretty much like this. It was much different from the madhouse it is today.

Boy, I'll say. My first commercial flight connected through there in 1961, and in 1969-1970 I commuted just about every Monday and Friday from Minneapolis to West Covina and back through LAX. I often wondered what happened to the wall of celebrity photographs that were in the Western Airlines VIP lounge.

And then there was the Carolina Pines ...

Cheers,

Earl

The Encounter Restaurant closed for business in December 2013 with no future plans to reopen, although the building's observation level is still open on weekends. Previously, the restaurant was closed in March 2007 for repairs after a half-ton piece of the stucco skin on the upper arches crashed onto the roof of the restaurant. Its seen in ER's photo above.

I had dinner there in about 1962. It was upscale at that time but later became just a coffee shop....now its closed.

This what I had then...salmon and red caviar.

Today in 2017 a visit to LAX is like crossing the River Styx into the Underworld which is commonly referred to as Hades.

New member tdinla (hey td) is currently the owner of the gorgeous Craftsman at 202 N Westlake Ave (1910), a home BifRayRock and I got interested in a while back:






zillow/mls


The priors:

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ostcount=42058

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ostcount=42059

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ostcount=42066

http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ostcount=42067

Zillow states that the home was originally built in Hollywood, but td finds that it started out on Bunker Hill somewhere between Court and 1st (not an area known for Craftsman homes). Can anyone here shed more light on the history of td's house or Thomas Thurman, who moved this and other homes?

Not sure if this is even the right Thurman:

202 N Westlake is currently between Court and West 1st...the latter now being Beverly Blvd. Don't know where the Bunker Hill idea comes from. Before the street and address changes after the annexations occuring around 1910, Westlake in this area was Quebec Street. There are various references to Thurmans on Quebec going back to 1904--including a Louis, who built 121 that year....

Thomas and Minnie Thurman, an African-American couple, were living across the street at 203 during the '20s, when, in May 1925, they built a new foundation for 202...can't tell from building permits where the house was coming from.



From the Times, June 8, 1903:
