El Pueblo de Los Angeles State Historic Park: preliminary proposal

Creator/Contributor:

Old Los Angeles Company, creator, publisher.

Abstract:

Proposal by The Old Los Angeles Company (originally formed by Albert Ehringer, Robert J. Morris and John P. Wilson) to lease the development of the historic district then named El Pueblo de Los Angeles State Historic Park, specifically to "restore and redevelop the Pico-Garnier buildings to the peak of their respective periods". Proposal includes bound typescript volume containing an account of the principals' earlier restoration projects in Santa Monica, Sacramento, Chico and Colorado City; details of the proposed restoration process for eight of the Pico-Garnier buildings with suggestions for their future purposes; and appendices presenting letters of recommendation and financial statements for each of the principals. Proposal also includes 32 photographs depicting buildings that serve as examples of the principals' earlier restorations works -- e.g. Madison Bear Garden building (Chico) and various buildings in Santa Monica -- and an artist's rendering of a proposed restoration of the Pico House.
