The Birthday Letter
I just watched the episode and noticed that Kathy Williams
and her mother (Virginia Carroll, Ralph Byrd's wife) live in
a beautiful 1920s style apartment building, which has the street
address of 80 North Euclid. The building is next to a church.
I looked up the address on Google and found it belongs to
80 North Euclid Avenue in Pasadena!
Here's the scoop;
a) It's on the National Register of Historic Places for Los Angeles
b) Built by Edward B. Rust in 1926.
c) It's real name is "Town House Apartments."
TAOS scene shows a church: All Saints Episcopal Church (1925)
at 132 North Euclid Avenue, also on the National Register of
Historic Places for Los Angeles County.
The apartments are also a few blocks from Fuller Theological
Seminary and 2.6 miles from 1447 North Michigan Avenue. Google
it and you'll see how close it is to GR's childhood home. Euclid
Avenue - North and South - is part of the historic downtown in
Here's a link for you to examine. This looks like the church
in the shot, which could have been purchased stock footage for
1. If you search "All Saints Church" in the Los
Angeles Public Library Digital Catalog, you will find this photo.
It's intriguing - why did they use this shot for the episode,
rather than an apartment building in Los Angeles? Does it have
any personal connections to Reeves or other crew members?
Best to you,
