Another Example of Mills' Work in Carmel

The photos of this house hold up to SDR remark about the finesse of the execution in wood and the qualities that remind one of Hillmer. You can clearly see the marked difference in the latter additions or "improvements" to the house. https://www.sothebyshomes.com/Monterey-Real-Estate/sales/0475122-2...

Foster Rhodes Jackson's former residence for Sale

There has been some remodeling of Jackson's former residence in La Verne, California. I'm not partial to the remodeling, but the house seems largely intact. See below:

Long Lane Farm by Schweikher and Elting

This house was designed in 1949 by Schweikher and Elting and was featured in Architectural Record in 1952. There appears to be many nods to Wright in this design.

Fire in the Santa Monica Mountains

There seems to be a relationship with the increase in the population in the mountains, the frequency of the fires and the destructiveness of these fires. The chapparal evolved with fire occurring every 15 years, but with better fire fighting, and the reluctance to use prescribed burns, many areas do...

Fires in the Santa Monica Mountains

According to the NPS, there have been 343 fires in the Santa Monica Mountains between 1925 and 2012.

Fire is a regul...

Obler Complex

Thank you for the photos. A devastating scene, the destruction of the Obler complex looks complete. It is always startling to see a structure completely burned while relatively unscathed trees surround the complex.

Harwell Harris Mulvihill House

Harwell Hamiltion Harris' Mulvihill House is up for sale. I had always wondered about this house. The dramatic siting on the hill, make it look far larger than it actually is.

Rodney Walker House

Perhaps, the elimination of the old materials and the use of the new muted decor are to prepare the house to go back on the market.

Japanese Prints

I noticed that your choice of Japanese prints included only Kabuki actor prints and, in this case, of an actor portraying one particular role in the play Shibaraku.
