This is from Ye Sylvan Archer, July 1937. It was on the inside of the back cover. Don't know if this was just before the Sunland, CA address, or if there was another location in between. Bob Burton probably knows.

I was curious also. Looks like the house was built in 1947. So, whatever was there before could have been a house or a commercial building.

Google Earth street view let me drive right past the house and turn the corner.  Pretty nice. Big house with a very fancy wrought iron fence that Tom mentioned, and driveway gates.  Sadly, the residents probably never heard of Howard. 

Our personal privacy is sadly going downhill with these apps.  On the upside, I bought  items on ebay and never received them in total. The seller had more excuses from sickness to no car insurance.    Upon checking the guys address on google earth, I contacted  the guy to tell him that a police officer Army buddy of mine worked in the Station around the corner from him and would pick it up for me.  Got my package 4 days later.  [biggrin]

  I think that's the earliest ad that I have ever seen for Howard Hill products. I notice that at this point he had not gone to the longbow with signature logo that became popular.

Thanks Bob!

I was going to clarify a couple of points and you did one of them. The house that is presently at 12007 Saticoy street was built in 1947, which is 10 years after Howard Hill was at that address. So, the question remains, was that location a commercial building at that time? From the photo above we can surmise that it was on the next block from his home. If it was a private residence, was he renting or leasing it to use for his business? Likely it was a commercial property.

You know there is a picture of Howard and Guy Madison in Howard's shop, that could be from that time frame possibly a little later. Its nothing more than small building with what looks like a dirt floor, not a retail store by any means, but I don't think he had a store until much later, into the late 40's. He hired Dale Phillips in 1949 thru 1954. I got those dates from his son Kurt, who is a close friend of mine.

It was nice to see Earl Grubbs ad. I have one of his bows. Calfskin backed Osage. It still has the original pigskin grip. Tiller is still good and has surprisingly little string follow. The Osage has darkened to a deep Mohogany. She still shoots.

Bob, I have info that the photo of Hill and Guy in the shop with the dirt floor is from the 50's based on a bow that is shown hanging in the rafters.

The San Fernando Valley Times reported that he joined The North Hollywood Sportsman Club in 1938. The Saticoy St. address is listed.

According to wikipedia, the census listed this address as Howard's residence.

There is another interesting ad there as well for Hayward Styles which I have been told that Howard learned some bow building from.

So, when was Howard Hill living at the 11523 Saticoy address? Why did he move a block away? Which was first?

In his book Straight Shooting, John Schulz said that Howard's house on Saticoy St was bulldozed to build a highway interchange.
