This house at 23605 Warner, built in 1905, looks just about the same now as it did when the black-and-white photo was taken in 1943. A couple years earlier, at the time of the 1940 census, Ed Thayer lived here with his with his elderly parents, John and Elizabeth Thayer. He was 41. They were 87 and 70, respectively. The house is located just behind the Los Tres Amigos parking lot.
