Requests for Pictures
So here at WeirdCA we can always use more pictures and sadly can't get everywhere. Also older historical pictures of things now gone or how things use to be are at times lacking in availability to us. If you have any pictures of the following (and even of items not of the following too!) that you would be alright with me using on the site (I watermark any pictures by the way with your name, unless you want them watermarked some other way) then please let me know and it would be very appreciated. Please note that pictures (the copyright) must be owned by you in order to submit them to me. Please do not submit other people's photos or pictures found on the internet.
Please note, that by submitting photos and content to us by any means to any of our websites, you are allowing us royalty free, perpetual, irrevocable right to use, modify, display, reproduce, publish, adapt, and create derivative works from the content you sent to us.

- Does anyone know the address of where Gunther's Castle Real Estate office was in Hollywood.
1920's I believe.
WeirdCA.com - Gunther Castle Real Estate was a form of Programmatic Architecture in the Los Angeles area. Sadly I do not know what its exact address was. Although we have an old picture of it on the Programmatic Architecture page.
