Attic Hunting At The Ocean House

by The Editors on March 27, 2009

Mural2 T350.JpgLisa Snyder, the general manager of the Village Faire Shopping Center, was rooting around in the attic above Carlsbadistan’s Ocean House Restaurant when she found a tube containing a long-lost “22-foot-long, 6-foot-high painting that once hung on the wall” of the restaurant, according to a Michael Burge story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The painting was one of three that had been tacked up in the old restaurant, which was known in its heyday as “The Twin Inns.” . . .The canvas – yellowed and slightly misshapen – shows a bosky, pastoral scene and has a signature in the bottom right corner: “J. Morton Patterson, 1/25.” . . . Snyder said the owners haven’t decided what to do with the rediscovered treasure. . . . “It’s more of historic significance than monetary,” she said.

We’ve always wondered what was in those haunted upper rooms.
