Map of the Napa Valley
A gorgeous map given out by Beringer Brothers Winery in St. Helena. San Quentin is on the map, but not the Napa State Asylum … move your mouse over the image for a close-up.
A view looking north up Lincoln Avenue near the Calistoga bridge; 1940s. Most of the main business in Calistoga was located on this main road, including Nance’s Sanitarium.
An early color postcard showing bucolic–and supposedly peaceful–Calistoga.
Spas and Hotels
The hotel where Rick stays in CITY OF SECRETS. It’s been remodeled–but it’s still in business.
An older postcard–probably from the 1920s–but probably still in use during Miranda’s visit.
Some of the services at Nance’s … at least, the ones they advertise. Mouse over for a zoom on the text.
An image of Nance’s from closer to Miranda’s visit.
Napa Valley State Hospital
This 1909 view makes the infamous Napa State Mental Hospital (still in use today) look like the Magic Kingdom.
Another early view of the Napa State Mental Hospital. If it reminds you a little of “The Shining” … it should.
