As you said, the 'mystery' building is probably one of the smaller homes under construction (and minus the roof)

Pio de Jesus Pico, c. 1800s, the last governor of Alta California, Mexico

Pío de Jesús Pico was a California rancher and politician, the last governor of Alta California under Mexican rule. He served from 1845 to 1846. He was also elected to one term on the Los Angeles Common Council.
And here's his ranch house over in Whittier:

Here's a reminder of a slightly later picture which I posted as part of a then-and-now nearly four years ago. Extra windows have been added on the 3rd Street side, which explains why they don't match the originals. The building has also acquired a blade sign.

Fresh baked bread and . . . horses.

Riding a fender-less bicycle over a road shared with horses - while wearing a suit - must have made for interesting laundry issues.



Spring Street from Third Street, ~1903 http://hdl.huntington.org/cdm/single...0coll2/id/3504 (Reasonably certain this is not new to NLA, but worth another look.)













Ebinger's Bakery, 303 (or 301) S. Spring Street. Louis aka Lewis and other Ebinger family members kept house at 755 Maple Ave. in the late 1800s-early 1900s. Later moved to 3500 S Flower. Lewis was also affiliated with "L.A. Indicator Co." (Guessing this involved street signs, including road hazard warnings.)

Monte Sano

That is definitely the building in the film. I had that in the back of my mind but could not remember the name of the hospital to look for a photo. Good detective work finding it.

My mother was living at 116 South Hope when I was born in 1934...at the time it was a shelter for young unmarried women with child.

'The Film Noir Star Whose Boy-Toy Affairs Scandalized Hollywood'.

It's a rather lurid title for a well written article.

Well-dressed children on a bench in St. James Park, Los Angeles, 1909.



Los Angeles Herald-September 12, 1909.

Wouldn't it be interesting to know the identities of the children.

My eye keep returning to the girl in white at the end of the bench on the left.
Is it just me, or does she appear rather aloof?

crittendon home

those black and white images of the crittendon home are amazing. I drove by today and saw a plaque saying something about renovations and additions being done in the 50s. these photos were definitely taken before the addition of the new wing. cool stuff!

That article e_r posted from The Eastsider contains some great recollections in the comments section. There's also an article at The Eastsider specifically about the Booth Home. One of the commenters called Fred says:
"This is actually a charter school now. Also, it wasn’t always Mediterranean style. It used to be a beautiful, all red brick building. I’ve looked for pictures forever, but can’t find any. I live on the same block as this building, and can verify, this used to be a bad girls home. “Unwed mothers” is a nice way to put it, but we used to get gang members, suicide cases, and lots of runaways, girls getting picked up by their boyfriends while trying to sneak out/escape.

It was really crazy growing up with that thing on my block. Too bad they stucco’d it. It used to be look really cool."
This makes me even more determined to find a picture of the building before "they stucco’d it"!

I wonder who the kids are too--the aloof girl as well as the Little Lord Fauntleroys at center. (What the hell have they got on?)
Maybe they're Clarks (who lived at 9 St. James Park, as well as next door to that) or occupants of the 1900 house behind the
palm, which I would say is 24 St. James Park:





More on St. James Park here


Could the palm even still stand? In the GSV below, 24 SJP would have been more or less to the left of where the trees at right are;
could the palm behind the kids possibly be one of the two to the left of the stop sign?...

But I think that Jack Webb was faced with going forward without Roger Smith, whom I believe was not going to be available because he was recuperating from a brain aneurysm, or Edd Byrnes, who had asked out of his contract to pursue film roles. Now, I would just have brought back Richard Long as Rex and gone forward with the same setup, but that's just me.
My apologies, Martin, for letting it slip past me that you recommended the website. Please go visit it, as I have been spending an inordinate amount of time downloading my incredibly useless storage of Warner Bros detective trivia and observations on the thread. Probably not the true intention of the site, but I feel the need to unload these thoughts somewhere.

Otis: I entirely agree with you that the show might have survived if it kept to its original premise, but without Roger Smith or Edd Byrnes--doubtful. It was already losing audience in its fifth season. Those characters were necessary to offset the older, more austere countenance of Efrem Zimblist, Jr.
