I couldn't resist including a close-up of this marvelous Queen-Anne House. Notice the highly unusual porte cochere on the left side of the house.
I don't think I've ever seen an open-air 'room' built atop a porte cochere before.

Another source has this as the E.C. Hurd residence at Cahuenga and Hollywood, circa 1910. Dates and attributions are from source and, in some instances, suspect.
