Description
View of the Mission Revival/Islamic style Hollywood residence (center) and extensive gardens of artist Paul de Longpre´, as seen from the corner. 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 French born artist desired 65-foot-deep lots on which to develop an extensive flower garden, visible in the center of the image. At one time de Longpre´ had 4,000 roses, which he depicted in his paintings. Many tourists visited the residence, art galleries and gardens between the late 1890s and the late 1910s. The home was demolished in 1927.
