1230 Holland St., 91030

An SPB reader writes:

Here's an interesting bit of South Pasadena trivia for you: I just discovered through a Wikipedia link that the house used in the opening titles of the 1970's TV drama "Family" (the fictitious 1230 Holland St.) is actually 1230 Milan St. in South Pasadena.

I also read that some episodes of "Family" will be coming out on DVD this September. Maybe some locals would like to screen it to see how well the Lawrence family's advantures approximate the real thing.


I am not familiar with the series, but I would be interested in seeing footage of South Pas in the 70s. (Although, it's probably not that different from how it looks now. ;) )

A web-site, apparently set up by a fan of the show: http://www.geocities.com/hollandst

The Internet Movie Database entry for "Family": http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0073992/

[NOTE: there is a link on the right-hand side of the IMDB page for DVD orders at Amazon.]

That show was HUGE when I was in junior high. I had no idea that it was South Pas, though.

I don't know that I had ever heard of it previously...anything about the show stick out in your memory?
