Description
Postcard published by A.C. Bosselman & Co., New York, catalog #8522.
Architects Theodore Augustus Eisen and Sumner P. Hunt originally designed the estate for Oliver Posey in 1899-1900, but Mr. Doheny bought it in 1901. It includes 22 rooms and the first privately owned elevator in Los Angeles. Following Mrs. Doheny's death in 1958 the residence passed to the Catholic Church, and in 1962 became the Doheny campus of Mount St. Mary's College.
Color postcard showing the expansive estate of Edward L. and Carrie Estelle Doheny, located at 8 Chester Place in the West Adams district.
