Above, a home at the northwest corner of Kingsley Drive and Wilshire Boulevard designed by Frank M. Tyler. There are four rooms and a servants' suite on the first floor, and four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor. The first floor is finished in mahogany, oak and birch with hardwood floors. The exterior is brick for the first story and stucco over wire lath on the second.  There is a billiard room on the third floor. Cost $15,000 ($329,805 USD 2007). The buyer is an oil executive named George F. Getty, who will die in his sleep at his home  May 30, 1930, at the age of 73.

Quote of the day: "He held that steady and loyal employees, and many of them, are essential to the success of any large enterprise and are good investments." --Getty's obituary in The Times.
