Stimson Mansion on Figueroa
[As part of the remit to make the Untold LA iPad Book available to as many people as possible I'll be posting pages from the book in sequential order on a regular basis until it is completely online.]
In the Introduction I wanted to include a sample 'street scene' which illustrates how close some of these beautiful, historic homes are to the streets of LA. On Page 22 of the Intro we see the Stimson Mansion on Figueroa, (an street ripe for redevelopment?). In addition to the photo of the Stimson we have an oral history audio clip from long-time Van Place Buren Place resident Irene Grant on what West Adams must have been like in the past.
You can listen to the audio clip below, followed by other photos of the Stimson that are found throughout the book and finally a screen grab showing how the audio clip and photo are used in the iBook.
