View of the Mission Revival/Islamic style Hollywood residence (center) and extensive gardens of artist Paul de Longpre´. The home was located on the west side of Cahuenga Blvd. at Hollywood Blvd. on property he obtained from Mrs. Wilcox Beveridge after he moved to Los Angeles in 1889. The artist, who was born in Lyons, France, desired the 65-foot-deep lots on which to develop an extensive flower garden, visible in the foreground. At one time he had 4,000 roses, which he depicted in his paintings. Many tourists visited his garden and art gallery between the late 1890s and the late 1910s. The home was demolished in 1927.
