Note: This is an encore post from 2005 and originally appeared on the 1947project.
Of course, all through this period is the sensational case of Bud Gollum and Louise Overell, who were accused of killing her wealthy parents by blowing up their yacht in Newport Beach.
But where was the Overell house? News reports of the time give the address as 607 Los Robles in Flintridge, which comes up as an error on Mapblast. Those of us with a 1940s Thomas Guide (which I’m sure you’ll agree is a must-have and can be found on EBay) are undeterred. The street was renamed Foxwood Drive, and according to domania.com it’s a neighborhood of $1.8-million homes.
