Note: This is a repost of a regular feature I did for the 1947project in 2007 in which I tried to find homes listed in The Times’ Sunday real estate section in 1907. Architectural Ramblings was one of my favorite features because it took me into all sorts of neighborhoods that I would have never visited otherwise and it was a pleasant surprise to discover how many 100-year-old homes have survived in Los Angeles despite development and earthquakes. The homes in what is now downtown Los Angeles, are all gone, of course, but those built in what were the outlying areas are still around, although they typically have lost their brick chimneys, and may have aluminum windows, burglar bars and a coating of stucco.

The buildings featured in The Times for this week have been torn down, but in glancing through the listings, I found the sale by the Althouse brothers of a lot at 3006 S. La Salle.
3006 S. La Salle
I can’t say the house was particularly interesting, although I was happy to find it still standing. Still, it was an interesting neighborhood to visit and the house at 2921 S. La Salle cries begs out for rehabbing.
2723 S. La Salle.
