A Fun Bit of Sherman Oaks and Valley History

  Sherman Oaks History

“Los Angeles is surrounded by valleys, but there’s only one Valley…”
Hush Money, by Peter Israel.

poolsthumbI was reading a traveler’s guide book from 1940 called “Know Your Los Angeles” by Bert Van Tuyle and found recommendations for some long-gone Valley restaurants. Before the freeways, Ventura Boulevard was part of the coast route through California, U.S. highway 101. Many of these places probably served highway motorists.

Ching How, 11348 Ventura: “Chop suey…very good and reasonable….”

Edward’s Chinese House, 12403 Ventura: “Not a large place….”

A Bit of England, 13231 Ventura: “Real English meals….”

Windsor House, 14016 Ventura: “Good food and entertainment….”

Aunt Plenty’s Kitchen, 14131 Ventura: “Fried chicken, corn pones and moonshine pie….”

Dick Stanton’s, 13147 Ventura: “Baked goose and frog legs….”

The guide also listed some Valley movie star addresses, including:

Bing Crosby, 10500 Camarillo Street
W. C. Fields, 4704 White Oak Avenue
Mary Astor, 10043 Valley Spring Lane
Richard Arlen, 10025 Toluca Lake Avenue
