An article about this house, written shortly after it was discovered and authenticated by Mary Jane Hamilton, was posted here. That might give the name of the original owner.

James, I have been by Taggart many times. One passes it on one of the approaches to Griffith Park. It has been years, however, so I never saw it in disrepair, just a state of shabbiness. I have never ...

The FLW design that would warrant review in that context would be Sondern-Adler, the earlier almost lost within the latter.

Of the Dow houses listed above, the only one I am familiar with is Pardee ...

This is fascinating. I wish it had been built ... somewhere, not on the site of the magnificent Blossom garage that was built in 1907, however.

I also concur. There's too much of it in too many venues already. Let's let it die for good.

I have long admired Ando's work, but this is out of left field. I hope it doesn't color his future palette.

His book on Louis Sullivan is slight, but very interesting.

I met him in '86 at the last of Tom Monaghan's symposia. It was hard conversing; by that time he was beginning to lose his hearing, but h ...

Both structures at La Min look great. If I had my druthers, the bridge that connects the studio to the house, added by Lloyd in '26, would be deleted. It mars the garden fa├žade of the house. I would ...

When La Min was built, the original lot had just one geometric point touching Prospect Crescent. The original 1-car garage was built on an easement on the neighboring property, which had a house on it ...

DRN, there's another aspect to the numbers game: There are 320,000,000 people (give or take) in this country. While an event that attracts, say, 320,000 (give or take) would make any organizer giddy, ...

The neighboring McArthur Garage has the same setup with a turntable allowing two cars to fit (only one pit). I don't know about the history of reverse, but I bet these two garages had more to do with ...

WAR, you are absolutely correct. Come to this site as often as you like, and if you don't feel able to contribute, don't feel compelled to.

I hesitate to further rumble the current political squawk ...
