14f 17 Chester Pl - Lee W Foster Residence - Foyer (E)
National Register Historic District Aproved __________ Lee W Foster Residence, 1900 17 Chester Place, Los Angeles, CA Hunt and Eager It's difficult to classify the Lee W Foster mansion stylistically for two reasons: First, the design of this house seems a-typical for the architecture team of Sumner P Hunt and Abraham W Eager; Second, the genre is understated enough to fit several categories. The low roof line, heavy entrance canopy, and horozontal orientation of the house seem to indicate Prairie Style. The stone facing of the first floor and some detailing suggest Spanish Colonial. The stucco of the upper floors and tile roof romance the Mission Revival Style. An article in the 11/16/1900 Los Angeles Times calls it "Italian Renaissance Style." If the architects themselves (presumably) considered this house to be "Italian Renaissance" then that's what it shall be. Mr Foster only enjoyed his home for four years before dying suddenly of apoplexy (a stroke). Born in Franklin, PA, he migrated to Colorado, then Butte, Montana. There he became a sucessful businesman, having opened a general store and invested in mining. He retired and moved to California -- first to Oakland, then Los Angeles. The details of his death can be found in the Los Angeles Times, June 6, 1905. Incidently, Mr. Foster's neice,, Mabel Foster, was briefly married to William Andrews Clark Jr. (son of the Montanta Copper King William Andrews Clark, Sr.) prior to her death in 1903. An often-told myth is that Mr. Foster purchased the lot in Chester Place and then prompty bought out his neighbors on either side at 15 and 19 Chester Place, and proceeded to demolish the mansions. He supposedly did this so he would have no prying neighbors looking into his windows. This story -- no matter how romantic -- appears to be false. In fact, the houses on either side of the Foster residence existed after his death in 1905. The Harry Gray residence, which was purchasedt by P Max Kuehnrich (19 Chester Pl), in 1904, and the F W Braun residence, which was later owned by B L Harding (15 Chester Place), were both featured in the 1908 publication of Los Angeles and Vicinity. An October 29, 1909, LA Times article reports that Jane R Foster sold the house at 17 Chester Place to Mr. Herbert E Wylle. If the homes on either side were demolished for this reason, perhaps it was Mr. Whylle's doing.The Foyer: Daily Express Building
I took this photo through the glass doors of the building in March 2011 and didn't realise until months later what a good shot it is. When the lobby was open to the public on Open House Weekend (in September) this area was so busy that I couldn't get a photo. This shows the layout of the foyer with links to other areas. The Daily Express Building was designed by Sir Owen Williams and was completed in 1932, it's grade II* listed.The foyer was designed by Robert Atkinson who took his inspiration from art deco American cinemas and New York skyscraper lobbies. Atkinson provided the Express with a Hollywood-style reception space complete with a starburst ceiling in gold and silver, travertine walls, rosewood dado, deep black marble plinth, bright metal fittings and a wave pattern floor of blue and black rubber outlined by narrow green strips. After years of neglect and loss, Plowden Smith, the specialist restorers, have recreated this dazzling interior to superb effect. The ceiling is newly covered in silver leaf, while the silver serpent handrails complete with darting cobra tongues, stolen 10 years ago, have been lovingly recast using old photographs. In the same way, the wave effect floor has been recreated in large tiles each almost a yard long.
