By 1947, the SSR branched out, opening a facility in Los Angeles, California under the leadership of Daniel Sousa. Using the front of Auerbach Theatrical Agency, Sousa used the alias of "Mr. Auerbach" to cover the reality of the organization. One of the first transfers from the New York Bell Company Office branch was Rose Roberts, who continued her duties as the first line of defense by acting as a secretary. One of the first cases that the new branch received was the murder of Jane Scott, found frozen in a lake in Echo Park on one of the hottest days of the year. Peggy Carter was sent to assist in the matter.
Peggy Carter was sent to assist in the matter, much to her displeasure. When she arrived at the building, two Lookie Loos were attempting to audition. They had managed to find the theatrical agency despite the facts that the agency has no advertising, the sign is barely legible and the address is spelled wrong in the city directory. Peggy Carter is then shown to the secret entrance of the SSR.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
