    Ten Days After… The Studio City Motel 

    Ten days after the murders, John Holmes and Dawn were arrested at this motel on July 10, 1981. Well, the only thing is… it didn’t look like this jewel by that time. This is circa 1960. It was and is a few blocks from Eddie’s house (maybe a mile). He was not hiding from anyone, except the cops. Ten days to find… and then bring him in…

    Email me for the July 1981 image of this once beautiful family motor lodge.

    By 1981… it was ratty shag carpet monster, green and blue paint, yellow plastic marquee lettering… interior was eau de vomit’e… and cracked bathroom fixtures, painted over and mattresses which needed to be flipped.

    Crummy motel in Sherman Oaks where John and Dawn stayed post Wonderland, and were arrested in July 1981.

      Ironically, PT Anderson of Boogie Nights fame, his family home is located at the southeast corner of Troost and Dillinger in Studio City just around the corner

          Yes, Dorene. I will… and post here for all. When I was there, the clerk asked me to leave – taking too many pics and had too many questions… I’m such a weirdo!

    A Drive Through Studio City (Dawn’s 7-11 Store) 

    The 7-11 store at 15 seconds is the one from Dawn’s book The Road through Wonderland.

    The Brady Bunch House is at 1:20!

    This is Bonnie’s hood. I love all of the classic style apartments the most. Where I live, they don’t keep old stuff around, they tear it down and build some new monstrosity. I love L.A. and need to get over there asap.

          what’s the 48? I’m just visiting family but I want to see the Rock and Roll museum or what ever it is. My brother has a lot of kids and I have my daughter so probably will be a lot of kid stuff.

          When I was there again in ’99, we just went to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It was the greatest day of my life. The next day we drove down to the Kentucky Derby and that was like an MTV Spring Break Beach Party. Crazy!!

      The Brady Bunch was my FAVORITE show as a kid!!! And John I agree, L.A. is calling. I SO need to live there. Here where I live, they tear the stuff down too. After the hurricane in 04 it was bad because the county took their opportunity to build more parks and condos for the very rich! Here, once the county has a hard on for your property, you might as well just give it up because they’re going to take it one way or another. I miss those old apartments and homes, they add character to the town. Bonnie, once again, you ARE the coolest!!!! ❤
