Golden World Records

 4039 Buena Vista

It wasn't long before 11801 Twelfth Street was replaced by 4039 Buena Vista as the home of the Golden World Record Company.

The Adorables 'Deep Freeze', Issue Golden World  number 4, proudly confirms this fact.

Reference has been made in the past to artists visiting premises on Buena Vista for auditioning purposes and I believe this was done in the basement which can be seen at the bottom right of the building.

Almost certainly, the house was owned by  Joanne Bratton and it remains a very desirable section of the city to live.

It was also within walking distance of the new studios on West Davison.
