"An Architect's Roadside Nightmare" read the cap tion for this photograph published in "Southern California at Work," in November 1934-a senti ment likely shared in upscale Beverly Hills, where the common touch of surrounding Los Angeles was, and is, anathema. Author Frederick Simpich was aghast at buildings shaped like "owls, derby hats, shoes, airships, dogs, teakettles, windmills, mosques, wienerwursts, zeppelins, and igloos."
