Cliff May Neighborhood in Los Angeles?

Is there an accessible Cliff May neighborhood in the LA area? My mom will be visiting and she is fan of Cliff May. I would love to take her on a drive by or walking tour of some terrific Cliff Mays.

Thank you!!
Gemma

P.S. Long Beach is too far for her to travel :(

We are hoping to have a garage sale some time coming up, but I am not sure when (it is easy to keep pushing it back!) and we will probably put them out then. I would love for you to have them; so let me know when you have your measurements.

Electolux is going to look into the part and call me ...
