He cautions home buyers and owners to be advised with the risks their property may have if their property was built during or before the 1940’s. His findings show that homes built before the 1940’s most commonly don’t have bolted foundations. Bolted foundations  were created in the mid 1900’s because this system of foundational structure provides safety against earthquakes. If a property doesn’t have bolted foundation, it is a safety issue for both the occupants and the stand point of the property.

How did Hollywood get its name? In 1886, Landowners Harvey & Daeida Henderson Wilcox named their ranch Hollywood after Daeida met a woman in Ohio whose country house was called “Hollywood”. Soon after in 1887, the city was named Hollywood, which became the haven for almost all industry talent. The city blossomed with its production in film. The first film created in Hollywood was called In Old California, in 1910 which was only seventeen minutes long. Soon after, new films such as Back to the Future, Terminator, The Lion King, and The Godfather were revealed, which are now world-renowned.
