Recreating (pieces of) the Garden of Allah Hotel

I recently came across a photo of a letter dated February 6, 1939, written from the Garden of Allah Hotel, 8152 Sunset Boulevard at the gateway to the famed Sunset Strip.

Handwritten letter on Garden of Allah Hotel letterhead, dated February 6, 1939

As I studied the photo, I realized that I had among my files that same artwork featured at the top of the page. I never really knew its intended purpose, just that I liked it, and it was from the Garden of Allah Hotel, which is the setting for my nine-book Hollywood’s Garden of Allah series.

Ah! thought I. They used it for their letterhead.

Hmmm! thought I. Perhaps I can do something with it. And the similar artwork I also have.

And so I now am happy to announce that I have partnered with Zazzle and come up with a range of seven recreated Garden of Allah Hotel items:
