Miracle of miracles, this house at 1233 S. Bonnie Brae is still standing.

Here's an image from Google's street view. Someone in the last century has tinkered with the porch and we have a non-period satellite dish, but by golly it's still there and that makes me a happy man. The Times doesn't say too much about Adrian Loeb except to note his name in half a dozen society columns. He was apparently a produce executive in early Los Angeles. I have the notion that I visited this neighborhood for an Architectural Rambling when I was working on the 1947project, but I can't find the post. The architect, who used the names Cooper Corbett, B. Cooper Corbett and Benjamin Cooper Corbett, flourished in Los Angeles from about 1900 to 1915 and designed many homes in the West Adams district.
