Look at all these beautiful homes and look at those HUGE swimming pools. Wow! I guess if you have the money you might as well spend it.
Great old postcards...

We went on a Hollywood tour many years from Singapore. We were in a bus. We saw a man walking, and he quickly used his baseball cap to cover his face.

The tour guide said," a has been, and wants to act famous."

There is nothing like the glamor of old Hollywood, is there? And I love how they put the star's picture with the cards. These were so neat!

Oh, Judy Garland's home is beautiful, right up my alley! Look at the perfectly manicured gardens and luscious swimming pools, too. Oh to be a movie star from the 30's and 40's LOL!

I'd love to see inside some of these star's homes. What a home tour that would be.

Great postcards! Love the Judy Garland one. We lived in MN for years. Judy was also from MN and there were big to-do's in her home town every year!

Blessings!

I love those! I think I would have to frame them and hang them all together.

JEANNE said...

Wow Meme, I thought you were off to Hollywood in person. I LOVE these postcards. This is the most fun post today. I'm loving it!!! Wouldn't it be fun to really see these places. Of course it was so long ago who knows who owns these homes now or if they even exist. Sigh. The way of many vintage things.
Have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Jeanne
