Great find, e_r.

Mayor Shaw--may I call you Frank? Well, Art Deco, it ain't. It's Chateauesque...that style very popular in L.A. in the '20s. Maybe the interiors are Deco... anyone care to go knocking? Btw, GREAT tour of the Normandie Towers.

Another Chateauesque building I hadn't noticed before is the Chateau La Martine at 627 S. Normandie...


Google SV
The few interior shots I've seen of the La Martine--tiny ones online--reveal that its interiors are in concert with its
exterior. I'm always surprised to find domestic architecture still so close to Wilshire. I guess it depends on the block.
