VINELAND AVENUE MYSTERY HOUSE

2010 THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES



By the time you see these photographs, this mysterious old house on Vineland in North Hollywood may be long gone. It has historical interest, not only in that much of the hand-needle work done for the film studios from 1930 to 1950 was done here, but that the studio structure behind the house was once a US Army building from the World War I era. The occupant had just died and his family from Idaho were clearing out the house when, I took these images.   Read on:

Here is Bob Peppermullert's answer to the mystery:

Not so much a mystery house as we have lived one block just north of the house for 45 years.
We have always known the occupants as Thomas and Barbara Todor and their two Dalmatians. Thomas was an embroidery specialist to the Hollywood studios. He died in Sep 1984, she in Mar 2007. The recent deceased referred to was Barbara. They came from Roseville (NE Detroit) MI and my wife's brother lived on the same Roseville street a few doors away.

They lived originally in Roseville (Detroit) MI two houses down from my wife's brother.
