For what it's worth, although Brutalism isn't my favorite archtectural style, I quite like the Liberty Savings and Loan building from yesterday's post.


Hopefully, we're back to a less contentious building with today's Julius Shulman post. It's "Job 559: Stiles Oliver Clements, Zandt Carpet Company, 1949".

A different angle on the sign.

The parking lot around the back.

This is the only interior shot. It's a great open space with no supporting columns.

All from Getty Research Institute

The Zandt Carpet Co was at 1122 N Vine Street, with the Colehurst Apartments at 1106. While the apartment building is still standing (the first floor has lost some of its glamour), the carpet store has gone, replaced by the Hollywood Social Security Office.


Here's the 2003 demo permit, which I believe shows the building in the Shulman photos. Who writes "Demo entire building" on a Stiles Oliver Clements design?
