Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. This was a hard one.
At first, there didn't seem to be much to go on. There was no house number visible, for instance.
But when I lightened the screencaps, I was able to pinpoint a number of clues: a broken sidewalk, a dented chain link fence, the Craftsman bungalows, gnarled trees, a hedge, and a stone & iron fence father back on the road.
The dented fence would seem to rule out Trinity's Long Beach neighborhood, so I shifted my hunt to San Pedro and Hollywood, considering Hollywood being the most likely. But search as I might, I couldn't find it.
Fortunately, a fan, Rick, came to our rescue. He noticed something I had overlooked: visible evidence that there had been sewer work done on that street, leaving behind its own unique path (as can be glimpsed in the bottom photo above). Rick looked for this and when he found it, traced it back to Selma Avenue and spotted the house.
