Heaven Is HERE!


I have started putting together some short videos as the best way to present information about the murder of Elizabeth Short and Los Angeles in the 1940s. 

The first one is about the Florentine Gardens and draws on a radio broadcast from the club and my collection of souvenir photos. The Florentine Gardens figures in the Black Dahlia case because Elizabeth Short lived for several months in the home of the club's business manager, Mark Hansen. Although the club has survived as of this writing (2006), the home on Carlos was demolished years ago to make way for a parking lot for First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood at Carlos and Gower.
