Looking Back, Century City 1969

I came across a few photos that I took, along with my good friend, Barbara Edelstein, in Century City in 1969. They were what we called "art" shots. Century City was a relatively new place, built on the former backlot of 20th Century-Fox Studios. There were sculptural buildings, exotic fountains and lots of concrete! The area is named for the Studio. TCF sold the property in 1961 to developers. In the very early years, 1925, this property was part of cowboy star, Tom Mix's ranch. There have been numerous additions and changes over the years. I hardly recognize it now.

I've been looking for an architectural photo of the Century House. I can't find any record of it. It is heavily chronicled in the movie, "A Guide for the Married Man" in 1967. There are many scenes taken in and around the Beverly Hills and Century City area in this movie.
