“Nothing interrupted the continual tumult that was life at the Garden of Allah. Now and then the men in white came with a van and took somebody away, or bankruptcy or divorce or even jail claimed a participant in its strictly unstately sarabands. Nobody paid any mind.”

– Columnist Lucius Beebe, a frequent Garden resident

With a slight rebranding – from Garden of Alla to Garden of Allah – new corporate management and a steady influx of highly paid writers, actors and musicians from the east, the Garden weathered the economic maelstrom in the early years of the Great Depression.
