A Brief History Of The Iconic Bungalows Of L.A.:


"The climate was perfect for a rambling 'natural' house with porches and patios...
but there were sociological reasons for the American Bungalow’s birth in California. Los Angeles and upscale Pasadena, an 1890s resort town, were growing fast. By 1930, Los Angeles would have more single-family dwellings that any comparable city, with 94% of its families living in single-family homes! An essential part of this mass suburbanization was 'an innovative, small, single-family, simple but artistic dwelling; inexpensive, easily built, yet at the same time attractive to the new middle-class buyer.' Enter the California Bungalow, a term that was in use by 1905 if not before." - - LAist

Your Say

Cozy, quaint. Lived in one for awhile, but someone in the past stapled a carport on one side. Thanks! At the end of Avocado, 1/2 block off PCH, couple blocks from Western, Lomita.

Grab a bag and let's hit the Strand!!!!

Every day was Partyville in lala land.
