Potential City of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.
Lloyd Wright, architect
Original owner was Harry Carr, a Director of the Times Mirror Co. Harry Carr, the Los Angeles Times columnist who built the house, died there. “Los Angeles is the ingredients of a cocktail not yet shaken. It is cluttered up with the traditions of other lands brought into our pueblo in suitcases. It has not yet melted into the traditions of the country.” (Source: Harry Carr, “Los Angeles, City of Dreams,” NY, Appleton-Century, 1935.)
Dr. William Quinn and his wife, Dr. Emma McNair Quinn, purchased it after Carr’s death in the late 1930s. (Source: daughter, Meg Quinn.)
“Originally this still-unusual house had a tent room at the side, (overlooking Rowena) and a bent pattern of fine canvas awnings which provided privacy and kept the west sun off the side of the house. Portions of the exterior stucco walls were stenciled to suggest ornamented concrete block pattern.” Described as a “beautiful and unusual rendition of Spanish Colonial Revival. (Source: g&w, 1985, p.180.)
