Historic Neighborhood
















The other day I showed you a photo of my neighbor's gate. Today I thought I would show you a photo of the same neighbor's house. The neighborhood I live in consists of large (on average 5,000 sq ft), historic homes built between 1900 and 1920 (my house was built in 1920). Apparently this neighborhood was popular with the Hollywood stars of the day, including Alfred Hitchcock who lived just around the corner from me (although way before my time). Several homes in this neighborhood are like this one; almost as if the architects were attempting to give them a "castle" look.

Very English looking home. Very lucky, the family that lives in this house.

Great shot! I love the historic homes in Long Beach especially the Bluff Park and California Heights districts.
