Thanks, Duncan. Whifler is missing from such standard West Coast guides as Gebhard, Mongomery, Winter et al, and Serraino's "NorCalMod," so it is good to see him celebrated at last.

That's one house that would look as good if it were entirely empty.

'59 DeSoto.

Sure -- but I wasn't looking at the furniture, the first time through. The details are all-consuming. (However, it would have helped to see the Japanese stereo/TV cabinet centered not on its block wall but on the building centerline -- for instance ?)

We've seen this house in previous images, in black and white, so it's grand to see the colors, of the block in particular. That's a 4" rather than an 8" block . . .a substitution that more architects might have employed, to the benefit of human scale ?

See latter group of photos. Empty -- naked as a jaybird -- awaiting radical surgery.

Yes, in fact his son is a member of the MCM site on Facebook and used to contribute often. Some very well detailed, interesting work in the bay area. Good stuff!
