More Star Homes

"Homes of the Stars" postcards were very popular back in the 1940s. The Carole Lombard postcard was made just before her death in 1942. Click on the links and read about these folks. Very interesting and talented people. ENJOY SOME MORE!

Whoa, Cary Grant's home sure is close to the water. I'm sure that winter storms destroyed that years ago.

The Carole Lombard card is unusual, it's the first one from this series in which you can see the star in front of the home!

They are cool postcards Major. I have a lot of them and I will post more in the future.

When Lucy and Ethel "toured" the stars homes there was a comment made about Shirley having a mail box in the shape of a dollhouse. I wonder if she really had that?

I'm loving this series of postcards!

Isn't Shirley Temple's childhood home in Laguna Beach?
