Karl Gerber explains how suburbia was sold in Los Angeles. First he discusses bus tours picked up along Wilshire Boulevard. But the more spectacular efforts included the Hollywood Hills Country Club in Studio City, Whitley Park in Sherman Oaks both of which were massive country clubs. Girard's fake mosque like village along Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills is also discussed as a means of luring buyers.

Griffith Park History - The Cursed Ranch - Rare Photo Share

Spanish Land Grant to the Los Feliz Curse invented by Lawyer and newspaper publisher Major Horace Bell. After Griffith J. Griffith tried to murder his wife on the roof of the Arcadia Hotel in Santa Monica (maybe due to the Los Feliz Curse) he was ready to deed the former Rancho Los Feliz to the city. Although there had been many fires and deaths on the land, Griffith's act of benevolence was most likely to restore his good name. The city demurrered on the gift for years. After Griffith's death his heirs followed up on the bequeath and the city finally accepted. Historian, Karl Gerber, believes the creation of Los Angeles' great park stopped the city from developing with an artery from Los Feliz where the rich lived in the teens and twenties (including the Chandlers) into the Burbank/Glendale area. Instead, Laurel Canyon, Coldwater Canyon, Beverly Glen, and Sepulveda Boulevard provided routes between the fashionable parts of the city and the San Fernando Valley became the great suburbia of the West instead of Burbank/Glendale which is a closer connection to mid-Wilshire and downtown Los Angeles. Moreover, Beverly Hills, Bel-Aire, and Brentwood became the exclusive enclaves of the city rather the Los Feliz which remains stately but does not have the allure of those westerly hillside communities. This history naturally covers myths of usury and anti-semitism blamed for the Dons' losses of their great Mexican land grants. Rare images of the observatory being built and a sketch from 1913 are seen near the end of this video. It is also explained that on the same day the fulcrum pendulum stopped in the observatory Orson Wells died. The Griffith Park observatory has been an iconic symbol of Los Angeles and Hollywood for years. It was featured in Rebel Without a Cause and more recently in La la Land.


New short story by cultural historian and employment discrimination lawyer, Karl Gerber. In this second part of the story the Greenwoods continue to hear about the visitor at their secluded antebellum mansion off Laurel Canyon. The first part of this story can be heard at: https://youtu.be/Y5XyU7Emono. This second segment starts on the outskirts of Camarillo along the Ventura Freeway. From their 1965 Mercury Park Colony Wagon they listen to a homemade radio transmission of the going ons at home while Mrs. Greenwood talks to their Belizian maid on her white car phone not acknowledging they have been evasdropping the last couple hours. The Greenwoods get off the new segment of the Ventura Freeway and head to the new small boat harbor in Oxnard, California. Mr. Greenwood assumes the post on his fly bridge where he tries to contact the LAPD. Ultimately, the LAPD is motivated to go to the Greenwood's home because the visitor is described as a large negro man and much has been said about Emilia the maid being scared because the man has persistently knocked on the door, buzzed the gate, and rang the door the last few hours. The visitor's purpose ultimately reveals Mr. Greenwood's real racial makeup. This story shows how people who were less than white held deep racial biases as late as 1965 in places like Los Angeles, not far from where the Los Angeles music scene would evolve with persons like Frank Zappa, Alice Cooper, Crosby Stills and Nash, Jonie Mitchell, and the other canyon dwellers near the Laurel Canyon Country Store. This segment focuses on some of Southern California's history in Oxnard including Bud Smith who built the Oxnard Marina and beach community with Bonanza money from Dan Blocker and other cast members. All music, sound bites (including the one about the lesser known Casey Kasem), and commercials are what would have been heard over Los Angeles radio in August of 1965. The songs are all from the Billboard Top 100 charts.

Without Isaias Hellman There Would be No Los Angeles - Financier of the West

Forgotten founder of Los Angeles. Isasias Hellman was questionably Los Angeles' first banker. He started off keeping deposits in his cash register because sending the money through a Wells Fargo stage coach was costly and took too long. He officially opened his first bank with a non-Jewish former governor of California John Downey because he feared anti-Semitism if he were the bank head. He married a woman whose sister was married to a Leeman as in the Leeman Brothers. In order to divert a banking crisis in California and Los Angeles he borrowed from Leeman. Hellman's bank, Merchants and Farmers Bank (ultimately Crocker Bank and Wells Fargo) came through the crisis as the only bank in Los Angeles. His wife moved onto many charitable activities such as founding the first real hospital in Los Angeles and the first Jewish Temple which became the Wilshire Bouelvard Temple. Hellman donated the land for USC. His relations with Leland Stanford, and his donation, got him appointed as one of the first Regents in the University of California system. He caused the railroad to go through Los Angeles instead of San Diego as well as the port which many believe is why Los Angeles became the greatest city of the West and not San Diego. He lent the Otis Chandler money to buyout a certain newspaper called the Los Angeles Times. He also lent two down on their luck mineral prospectors who came through and started a company known as Unocal today. He also was instrumental in starting the first street car company in Los Angeles which helped Westward expansion. He also was involved in the first water and power company. His investments included vineyards in Los Angeles, the land purchase of the Port area, and Rancho Cucamonga in San Bernardino County. Hellman's brother, he came to the US with, started Smart and Fina. In this video a number of rare images are shown of Los Angeles and people associated with Hellman. Clearly, without Hellman Los Angeles and the West would not have taken off. Many believe the lack of knowledge of Hellman is because he was Jewish.

Influential People in Los Angeles History Griffith of Griffith Park & Hellman financier of the West

Explore the few who made Los Angeles a major city. Isaias Hellman was arguably the first banker of Los Angeles who financed the West. His wife started the first hospital in Los Angeles. He donated the land for USC, but that is not all. Griffith J. Griffith donated the land for Griffith Park and changed the residential development pattern of Los Angeles. Without the bolsterism of the Chandlers, who were also members of the syndicate who sold the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles would not have become what it was during the reign of the Los Angeles Times. There is also a brief discussion of William Mulholland. This is the livestream version of Episode 108 of the Karl Gerber, Workplace Lawyer Show. In addition to being a Los Angeles employee lawyer, Karl Gerber, has studied Los Angeles history since he was a child and maintains two sites about vintage Los Angeles: https://employeelawca.com/vintagela/l... and https://www.vintagelosangeles.org/gri... where he writes about Los Angeles and shares his collection of rare images
