  1. I love the book, Allan. I often can’t put it down. I go to look up one person or another and find myself going over every page as I search. It’s like a great novel in the form of a directory. The phone book as high drama. Unique and fascinating. Thanks again!
    You’re welcome Steve and thank you. – Allan

    Hi FYI–I lived at Afton Arms March 10,1968 –B-14— $90.00 a month. Thank you for the picture–it brought back memories of living in Hollywood in the late 60’s. I visited Valentino’s crypt every week, looking for the mystery lady that left flowers. I never saw her!
