One of my time travel destinations would be this place: the Cafe Trocadero at 8610 Sunset Blvd. It opened on September 18, 1934 by Billy Wilkerson, owner of The Hollywood Reporter. (The building had once been a warehouse where Wilkerson had stored his alcohol after the repeal of Prohibition.) It very quickly became Hollywood’s premier nightclub of the mid-to-late 1930s, and was where David O. Selznick chose to hold the post-premiere party for “Gone with the Wind” on December 28, 1939.

If the walls of this place could talk, they’d tell us 10,000 stories—literally! This is the Ladies wardrobe department at MGM Studios, Culver City. It was three stories tall, which isn’t surprising because by the 1960s, it had around 300,000 costumes in storage, and that’s not counting the ones it had discarded over time. I can only imagine the complex system they had in place to keep a track of all these items!
