Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument 427 – Cloverdale Manor, 364 South Cloverdale at Fourth Street in the Wilshire District – designed in 1930 by Clarence J. Smale. Smale liked it so much he decided to live here. The penthouse used to be Fred Astaire's dance studio. But those days are long gone. The days are darker now. And everything gets old, particularly in this curious neighborhood. ~ Tuesday, December 3, 2019
