Vintage Photo Friday
I was just a few months old when this photo was taken by my Dad. We are standing in front of our house that Dad designed on Castle Heights Avenue in the Beverlywood section of Los Angeles. The homes in the area where we lived were built mostly after World War II. They were modified ranch-style tract homes. My Dad bought the lot where our home was built and designed an entirely different style of house. As you can see by the photo below, the garage was on the first level and the rest of the house was upstairs. The backyard was a hillside and my Dad, being a student of modern architecture, decided to build a home into the environment. I was only two years old when we moved from Castle Heights Avenue, but I drive by the home often. It's still there....looking modern and classy!
