More Broadway LA City Hall leftovers?

I never knew that the bricks from the old City Hall, built in 1888 on Broadway and demolished after the current one was built in 1928, were then used to build the Heinsberger Decorating Company, still standing and looking great at 7415 Beverly Boulevard.

This is 2965 St. Gregory Road (b. 1930) in the Chevy Chase section of Glendale, which sold for $2.6 million in August 2019.
There are exterior and interior photos at Redfin and other websites.



Nov 2015 GSV (the house is a bit more obscured in more recent GSVs)


I invite you to compare the above home with this residence, shown in the April 12, 1930, Los Angeles Evening Express:



Newspapers.com


The 1931 LA City Directory shows Emery R. Yundt of Pacific Capital living in Glendale, so maybe that's his house.

FWIW, there's nothing in the recent real estate listings for 2965 St. Gregory Road that mentions historic city hall sandstone.
