Mystery History


Where are we? And what's happening?

The first person to answer both questions correctly will win lunch with me -- I'll buy yours and you'll buy mine. 

Remember, leave your best guess as a comment on this blog post but don't try to give the entire back story (that's my job). 

I'll have the full scoop on Thursday.

  2. I would guess the Elkes lodge after the 1971 sylmar earthquake. Don't think the building across the street was built back when Long beach had it's quake.

  4. OK, I'm going to guess this is recent history. The Ambassador Campus house that was once on Green Street near Terrace Drive (not from from the Elks club), not long before it was torn down.

  5. The "where are we" is correct in a couple of instances but the "what's happening" is not. Keep trying, kids!

    1. It's a porte cochere, Colonel Green. Those things are protected in Pasadena. Maybe an Elk crashed through the roof?

  8. Elks Lodge after the 1987 Whittier Narrows quake; the chimney has collapsed. It's October, and that's how we know it wasn't the reindeer.

  9. Recent project -- restoring Elk's Lodge to its former glory plus bringing plumbing/electric up to code.
