Very nice and as a bonus it's located right across the street from
a Buff and Hensman that just sold for about $ 1,000,000.
It had a 3,000 sq.ft. house and a pool but a real cosmetic fixer.

Zook had more then a dozen of his house designs published from the late 1940's to mid 1960's. mostly in the Pasadena area. Very nice to see this one and it looks like his work.
He also worked with Harold Bissner

Okay, I got it ! Leland worked for Kaleonzes & Klingerman as a specifications writer. K & K were published architects so you will find some nice stuff. Try L.A. Times and Pasadena Star News historic. I like Charles Klingerman's house in Pasadena ( published ) at 1210 Wynn Rd. in Pasadena

If need ever be, I have 8mm movies of the painting of the Million Dollar vertical neon sign ( swing chair and crane ) from around 1982. They had us remove all the neon at that time and removed the sign some years later. In 82 most of the top floors of the building were vacant and in bad condition.

Anyone know the architect of Rod's restaurant in Arcadia on Huntington ? It maybe closing up soon to make room for a car dealer.
