Mystery History

Where are we? And what's happening?

The first person to guess correctly will win a fabulous prize!

I'll have the full scoop on Thursday.


Petrea said...

Surely we must be at the Huntington, making a balustrade.

Wait. Now that I think of it, I've seen that particular balustrade at the Fenyes mansion. And the Wrigley mansion? Lots of mansions of the early 20th century copied that style from Versailles.

I'll go with Huntington, though.

Those balustrades are also on a bridge over the Arroyo Seco near the confluence with Millard canyon. But as to the man, and why he's making them, I haven't a clue (yet). You do find some good ones, Ann.

Jean Spitzer said...

Making replacement balustrades for the bridge?

Pasadena Adjacent said...

first guess: on the east side of the San Rafael ave bridge

second guess: the La Loma st bridge

casting balustrades

Kevin at Time River Productions said...

Everyone has the right idea, but the wrong bridge. Those balustrade posts are for the Colorado Street Bridge.

Margaret said...

Well, I thought Petrea was right. To me, it looks like the Huntington Gardens.

I want to find out who the good-looking man is, probably some important Pasadena figure we all read about but have never seen. Wild shot: It's not a set designer for Gone with the Wind, is it?
