So then Julie ran into....
I wonder who that could be?
Hi Beth, Hi Emma!
Oh, Hi Jess!
You won't believe what I found in this box!
What is it?!?!?
WOW! This is SO cool! Where did you find it?
In the attic! Can you believe it?
Look at all these pictures, they look old.
I'd say from the 1950s sometime.
Look, this is an actor's head-shot.
Look there are some letters.
I am finally here! Hollywood! My new roommate, Betty, is a photographer she took my picture in front of our apartment...."
Oh! This is where she lived. Looks like her real name was Camellia Cook.
"Starlite" must be her stage name.
"Here I am in my new bedroom. It's all in pink but you can't tell in a b&w photo. Betty says she is learning to colorize pictures and she says she'll colorize my photo! Oh and I have a new pet, I called her Missy Pooh!...."
Oh, look! here is the picture she was talking about.
Looks like her friend Betty colorized her head-shot, whatever that means.
Oh, before color photography pictures had to be hand colored.
How do you know all this stuff?
Look before and after!
Look at this, it says on the back
"The monks club" Hey, I'll bet they were Beatniks!
What are Beatniks?
Well, in the 50s they were the cool crowd, they hung out in coffee bars and read poetry and wore Berets, that's the hat Camellia is wearing.
Jess how do you know all this stuff?
Biff's Coffee shop, hmmm, never heard of it.
"Hollywood Blvd", WOW! That was a long time ago!
Look at this! The Wizard of OZ!
I wonder if this was the premier?
I don't know...it kinda looks like it might have been.
She couldn't have been at the premier, I think it came out in the 30s.
It must be a photo she picked up...oh yea it's a postcard.
Do you think it's OK to be looking through all this stuff?
You're right, let's ask mom.
It sure is interesting though!
I wonder how her things got in our attic?
