Do you recognize these homes? (I found this earlier today on ebay)

__

That's the Lucien Brunswig house in front, 3528 West Adams Blvd--we've seen the Brunswig Drug Co buildings here a number of times before, down by the Plaza. 3528 is gone...

Next to it is the Secondo Guasti house at 3500 West Adams--later Busby Berkeley's. Still standing.

The next house to the east is 3424, built by Lycurgus Lindsay--also still standing: http://losangeleshistory.blogspot.co...tories_23.html


Here's your post on the Guasti/Berkeley house, ER: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...postcount=4079


And one of mine on the Brunswig house: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...postcount=1177


As for Olive Thomas, it was poison, but, according to Steve Vaught's excellent analysis, it was accidental rather than nefarious: http://paradiseleased.wordpress.com/...ckford-part-i/
