1906 South Pasadena City Directory:

Both 1224 and 1303 Lyndon appear to have been torn down. Bank Street is the next street south of Lyndon. Here's a map.

H. N. Rust residence:

SCWHR-P-002.2-2124R at Seaver Center

Veranda at H. N. Rust residence (this appears to be the same side of the house as the above photo):

SCWHR-P-002.2-2506R at Seaver Center

There are other big Rust rose bush pictures at Seaver you can easily search for, but they don't show the house.
