    Mine Train Reunion Trip Report Part One The Snow White Cottages -Photos

    November 14th, 2006, I headed from the San Francisco Bay Area toward my favorite destination Disneyland. I was on my way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Mine Train at Club 33. My first stop was the Snow White Dwarf cottages in Los Feliz. The cottages were built by Ben Sherwood in 1931. "Consisting of eight half-timberered, steep-roofed small cottages built around a courtyard and anchored at the end by a Norman tower, the cottages exemplify the Storybook Architecture Style which flourished in Las Angeles in the 20's and 30's." It was from these cottages that Walt Disney got the idea for the Snow White Dwarf cottages. For those of you who have not visited this area you really should go if you get the chance. There is so much Disney history there. Gelson's Market the location of the original Disney Studios is right down the street from the cottages. The carrousel at Griffith Park where Walt first thought of Disneyland is only 5 minutes away.


    The cottages of the Seven Dwarfs are located at 2900-2912 1/2 Grifith Park Blvd. in Los Feliz.













    The next two pictures are of a cat that lives at the cottages.

    Oh wow... I had no idea about any of that and it's so close!
    Thanks, i'll def. go check them out.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Yes, the cottages designed with the exposed brick work. They are occupied by renters.

    Thanks for including the kitty pic! He's a darling!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!
