    Interesting. Note the outside fence with the Ray pic and the Bobby / McLeish brothers pic, as well as the flooring in the left top/bottom pic. I didn't pay attention to area at the McLeish brothers meeting. Thanks, jm10.

    Yeah...three blocks away! Guess they cringed every time they drove by...

    Wow...what a house makeover. I can't tell of the brick was painted, stucco'd over, or removed. And the colors...changed the house to match the shutters...ugh. Looks old, musty, uninviting. Oh well...

    Can't say much for Pam's final house makeover either...again...oh well. It's found earlier in this thread.

    Swellen's home s012.

    Current look...ugh

    it’s utterly baffling to me why so many of
    these fancy homes get completely redone.

    They rarely look any better afterwards to me, just different. Do people just get bored with the current look and have money to burn?

    I agree! I like both of them better pre-makeover!

    The other egregious example is the makeover of Katherine's "purchase of her childhood home" (pg 18). It's not as bad, but still lacks the elegance (as seen from the pic). Like you said...maybe boredom...who knows. It is what it is. And thanks jm10 for Swellen's s12 home. That was too easy.

    Interesting note on CAFE ESPANA. ...from iamnotastalker.com


    In the Season 12 episode of Dallas titled “The Way We Were”, which aired in 1989, Perino’s stood in for the supposed Dallas, Texas-area “Café Espana”, where J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman) and April Stevens (Sheree J. Wilson) had lunch.

    That blog has come in handy. Not only does it show how locations look now, but how they looked onscreen in multiple shows/movies. Thanks to the reporting at iamnotastalker.com I was also able to nail down these two other scenes that appear to have been filmed at Perino's:

    Cliff and Lisa Alden dine and Bobby and April see them (11.16) See the woodwork behind Cliff and those sconces behind April and the railing behind her? You will see them again,
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.16.58 PM.png
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.18.11 PM.png
    Cliff watches Afton perform (12.21) Sconce. Railing. Barstool.
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.26.31 PM.png
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.27.04 PM.png
    Comes back to see her later in the same episode.
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.43.22 PM.png
    Ciff picks up Afton then they go out to eat (12.22)
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.21.50 PM.png
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.28.04 PM.png

    All pictures with IANAS's watermark came from her website. You can see some things here that I matched up to the episodes referenced above.

    Perinos-Restaurant-1040923_thumb.jpg
    Cliff's barstool, those orange chairs, and the column.

    Perinos-Restaurant-1040905_thumb.jpg
    Those orange chairs, the velvet booth and the woodwork!

    Perinos-Restaurant-1040927_thumb.jpg
    That railing!

    Interestingly enough, I think the season 11 episode used the old Scalini's exterior establishing shot and the season 12 episodes used the old DaVinci's exterior establishing shot! According to her website, "the historic eatery never regained its original success and its doors were closed for good in 1986. The structure sat vacant for the next nineteen years, occasionally being used as a filming location and for private parties." Maybe it appeared in other Dallas scenes and we just haven't found them yet!

    Let's give this a try... Hospitals in California.


    The Jimmy Stewart Building on the studio lot fills in for Houston Memorial Hospital (07.24 and 07.28). Bonus: This same building was also used for Brooks Oliver's office exterior (06.15) and as Grayson Research (09.23, but multiple times in season 9). It is hard to get a good picture of what it looks like now because of a building that now exists in what was a parking lot. The new building is to the left and the Stewart building is to the right. A soundstage in the lower right corner.

    The Daniel Freedman Hospital in Inglewood served as Dallas Memorial (as early as (02.23) and Los Angeles Memorial (05.26). It has been demolished recently but here is what it looked like in it's final days. You can see the entrance that was shown onscreen towards the middle of the picture just to the left of the flagpole.

    Southern California Hospital at Culver City plays Dallas Medical Center when Bobby picks up Christopher from Faraday (05.10).

    And today in Google Maps:
    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 2.39.31 PM.png

    VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System filled in as Dallas Memorial and as the Braddock Memorial Hospital Exterior. This hospital shows up frequently in establishing shots throughout the show's run.

    Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 2.49.51 PM.png

    There is one hospital in particular that I have not been able to pin point. It is usually shown at night and I don't have a screenshot handy. Now there are some sanitariums, but I think we have already mentioned those...

    Yep. Texas Presbyterian it is. Also the one where Jeb Ames and Willie Joe Garr pull up with the longhorn Cadillac. A lot of action took place at this entrance.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here's current google view, as jm10 mentioned, the entrance has changed; it's to be expected.

    How many times did we see folks coming in and out if Dallas City Hall, walking around the cement pond.
    City Hall.png

    Also, left of the above pic you can see a flag. I think that's the location where in John Ross' kidnapping Jock went on a false alarm. The slate blue building with the dark ring around the top is Swellen's Valentine office location.
    Jock Kidnap false location.png

    It's the blocks between Akard, Young, Browder, & Canton streets.

    Today I am in a different part of Dallas than I usually come to. Drove by the Quorum Hotel this morning and now I am beside the Addison airport. A lot of Dallas happened in this area! No one with me would understand though. Lol.

    That's good! Understood for sure. Is the area nice there? Was 40 years ago but things change. Just curious.

    Lucy meets Mitch after his class, she knows his schedule, but he can make a last minute quick $50 on the night shift.

    Looking at a pic of a scene with Donna just before talking with Ray, at one of the open barns at JMJ Ranch at 930 W Portrero Rd, Thousand Oaks, CA.

    We learned earlier from johnmmil10 that Jenna's and Aunt Lil's were in Wylie. I also recently learned that Braddock is Plano.

    Here's an area overview...Wylie and Plano in relation to Dallas and S/F.
    Dallas area w- Wylie.png

    Here's Wylie with 4 locations of note: Jenna's, Aunt Lil's, gas station (Mickey worked), court house to resolve S12 range war, among others.
