No New Posts Nave Lanes in Novato: any photos or memories of this place?
I used to bowl here throughout the 70s and early 80s. Paul Panholzer was the proprietor, and the building had a really interesting design (some said ugly; some said beautiful) reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright (and the Civic Center!). I've got some pictures of the place right before it was torn down (...

What were some of the early phone codes like YU3-5555? What did they stand for? Geograhical places in Marin or streets? What year did they phase the number starting with letters out? Can anyone recall any Marin ones?

No New Posts Peacock Feathers and Hot Tubs anyone?
Where were you when NBC broadcast the 1978 news special "I Want It All Now" about Marin County hosted by Edwin Newman? If you lived in Marin at the time, were you insulted by the program or did you think it was pretty accurate? If you lived somewhere else in the country, what were your thoughts? By the...

No New Posts Movies for a quarter?
I remember in the fifties, going to the matinee at the Tamalpais Theatre and the Rafael. I think they were owned by Bloomfieldd or Bloomfeld ??? then. Anyway, sometimes they would raffle a Schwin bike which made going to the movies a really big deal. The price for a junior was 50 cents. I think p...

Does anyone remember the Stitham's "Christmas House" on Adobestone? I've got a video clip to add to the Spotlight section but I don't know much about when they started to doing it and when they stopped. Does anyone have any memories of this house?

No New Posts Movie Scenes Shot In Marin
I'm surprised I couldn't find a thread on this. Some are posted in bits elsewhere on this site but I thought it deserved it's own. I'm sure there are lots more to post. I watched Magnum Force on tv tonight. I get the Harry Callahan movies mixed up. There is the one with the Larkspur railroad trestle...

No New Posts Movies shot in Marin County

No New Posts Film of Train on Tiburon Trestle
From 5:40 to 7:00 of his 1950's era safety film there is a sequence shot on the Tiburon trestle. It's pretty cool. I'm sure some of you have already seen it but for those who haven't, see below.  This link starts the video at the beginning of the Tiburon sequence:

No New Posts Koch Luggage
Who else remembers Koch Luggage in Corte Madera ? Growing up in the area across 101 from Koch Luggage I remember thinking how cool the big sign was in front of the factory, it featured a futuristic X-15 type aircraft & a fiberglass suitcase with the company name in the center as I recall. Koch had a bi...

No New Posts San Rafael Halloween Haunted House
Remember the Haunted House that used to be in the San Rafael Courthouse at Halloween time? It moved to the old library near/on Belle Ave near Dominican. If you have access to a poster advertising the Haunted House or possibly an IJ ad I would LOVE to see it.

No New Posts Tiburon 1964 Safeway
There's an aerial view of Tiburon from the 1970s on this site showing the Safeway from about 1964 (now Bell Market) in the pyramid-roofed building in the upper right corner. The globe-shaped light fixtures barely visible in the right wall are still used today;

No New Posts Trout at Fort Cronkhite
Back in the 1970's people used to fish for trout in the little lagoon on the east side of the bridge that crosses the large lagoon on the way to Cronkhite beach, I wondered if the small lagoon was seperated from the larger one by some sort of floodgate, as I assumed the big lagoon was brackish water that tro...

No New Posts Marin Hookers?
Remember in the 60s & 70s when there were lots of street hookers in Marin? Some of them hung out right before the 101 Northbound entrance at the north end of Sausalito. The Canal area of San Rafael was another popular spot, especially in the area surrounding the Bermuda Palms Motel. Now all we have a...

No New Posts Phoenix Lake Drained
The date on the slide mount is too faint to read, but otherwise it's like the ones I shot in 1964-5. I can't remember why they drained the lake. Anyone?
