Morticia and Gomez weren't always in residence.
The Evanston Inn on Marengo Avenue was once a place where "Many well-to-do Midwesterners stayed in Pasadena in the 1880s and 1890s, once the transcontinental railroad made passage easy and inexpensive. The inn is located on Evanston Place, a name, like that of the inn, suggesting the city's Midwestern roots." [Pacific Coast Architectural Database]
And it doesn't take a whole lot of imagination to picture what's now:
I don't know what the future holds for the Evanston, but please, not another Pasadena gulag.
While doing some research, who should I virtually bump into but Pasadena Daily Photo.
Maybe she'll meet me on the porch
for some cookies and lemonade
and we'll talk about old times.
