Description
Visitors walk through the extensive flower gardens at the Mission Revival/Islamic style Hollywood residence (background) of artist Paul de Longpre´. Two men in the foreground appear to be wearing Shriner fezes, suggesting that a special event for the fraternal organization was taking place. The flower garden of the home, located on the west side of Cahuenga Blvd. at Hollywood Blvd., included at one time over 4,000 roses. The residence was a popular destination for tourists who enjoyed the beautiful home, de Longpre´'s personal art collection and the gardens.
