Esther Williams WWII Pinup

My brother took this photo years ago. I know it was taken somewhere in Southern California. Does anybody know what house this is and where this was taken? I really would like to know.

Esther Williams sure was a cutie! I think she performed in the Billy Rose Aquacade at the 1939 World's Fair. I remember that years ago there was a hubub because she wanted to wear pants to the LA Country Club, ladies were to only wear skirts and dresses. My grandmother wondered why Esther had to make "so much trouble"!! Meanwhile, Ms. Williams was probably as old as my grandma at the time.

The last photo is of Edwards Mansion, just off I-10 in Redlands.
