Would you believe a real fairy castle?!
Maven has been fascinated for years about Colleen Moore's Doll House. She was an actress who got her start in the silent
era and began building "Colleen's Folly" in 1928. It would cost $500,000 by the time it was finished in 1935 (almost
$8,000,000 in 2008 dollars). Just click on the link CHILDREN'S CORNER: Colleen Moore and Her Fairy Castle.
|The Brown Derby
|Click on the Photo to Go to Their Website
This is the famous Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood! The website also
has their menu which makes Maven's mouth water just looking at it!
It is also one of the places that is mentioned in a project Maven
was part of several years ago: Charlie Chan at College. Several of us got together and wrote a script
set between the Warner Oland and the Sidney Toler eras . . . complete with #1 AND # 2 sons, Lee and Jimmy!
|Kincaid's Grocery Market and Hamburgers
Not to mention that the "Toy Store" at the beginning of the story
is based on the very real Kincaid's in Fort Worth, TX, long an historic landmark for their hamburgers. They now
have several locations in the area.
