Seems like a large lot for a (small?) bungalow.

Thanks again,

Here's the best picture I could get of the old building that was demolished to make way for 1313 Sunset. It's from 2009.

One more mystery for this evening.



We have seen quite a few thematic/mimic structures on NLA, but I don't believe we have seen this giant FRUIT BASKET HOUSE from the 1930's.


EBAY If anyone would like to color correct the slide..I'd be all for it. (hint)

It was located somewhere along Venice Blvd.


for search purposes: 1972 SLIDE, Fruit Basket House, Venice Blvd. 1930's

Does anyone happen to know where, on Venice Blvd., this Fruit Basket was located? (it obviously survived as late as 1972)

#1 A fantastic look at the main house that, decades later, would become Yamashiro's restaurant.


#2 The imported, centuries old, temple on the estate grounds. (easily the oldest structure in Los Angeles) Is it still standing?




Of course none of this helps solve the cyanotype mystery. [1910]

It's still there, now known as the Pagoda Bar: https://yamashirohollywood.com/pagoda-bar

Not just Los Angeles, but the oldest structure in all of California!

The oldest building in California is Serra Chapel in Mission San Juan Capistrano(and why haven't we cover the Missions much?). Here's the interior:

That was, of course, built here and not moved here from abroad. Though in that category, I wonder how old the Japanese Teahouse and bridge at the Huntington are.

ETA: The Japanese House, the bridge, and the Tea House at the Huntington appear to be 20th century creations.
