Mr. Brendel builds his dream house

These two photographs, originating from the Fox Films publicity department, show El "working" on a house that him and his wife had built around the early 30's.

Looking at a couple of factors, including the Fox still numbers and their correlation to other stills in my collection and the time period these were shot, I have established that these pictures were taken at the address which was then named 274 Glenroy Avenue in Los Angeles. It is unknown, at this time, how long the Brendel's lived in this house, but by the time they registered to vote in the 1938 Congressional election, they had moved to 11106 Sunset Blvd.

The house still stands today (thanks Google Maps street view) but the address now is 274 South Glenroy Ave.
