Birth place of Judy Garland - Grand Rapids Minnesota by Robert Swetz (Vegas Bob)

Industry Observer

 Can anyone from Activerain please tell Vegas Bob where Judy Garland was born. And can anyone please tell me what Judy Garlands nickname was?

 Here is a Video I took of the Birth Place of Judy Garland and I am sure most of you never knew and now you do!

 Judy Garland's parents and my Grandparents knew each other.

 And did they ever find the real "Ruby Slippers?"

Hi Robert,

Was Judy Garland's nickname, "Baby Gumm"???  She did have an awesome voice...  I didn't know they had a Grand Rapids, Minnesota, since I associated Grand Rapids with Michigan... Learn something everday!   ;>))

I did not know there was a Grand Rapids, Minnesota either and James was born in Minnesota!  Very cool!  I don't know what her nickname was, sorry.  

Have a great weekend!

Hello Ann and yes her nickname was "Baby Gumm" and there are quite a few people that didn't know there was a Grand Rapids Minnesota!

That was interesting... too bad you caught them when they were closed down.  Of course they may not have allowed you to film inside anyway! Hopefully you can try your luck and share your adventure to Judy's birthplace at another time!

Holy cow. That's a step back in time.
