Description
Interior of the Mission Revival/Islamic style Hollywood residence and art gallery owned by artist Paul de Longpre´. Shown here is a room that has been transformed into what appears to be a small stage, decorated with Asian art and furniture. The home was located on the west side of Cahuenga Blvd. at Hollywood Blvd. on property Longpre´ 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 for a large flower garden, which at one time included over 4,000 roses. The residence was a popular tourist destination in the early 1900s and was demolished in 1927.
