Preservation of Style is a visual journey through some of Los Angeles' historical apartments of the 1920's and 30's. The book focuses on the architecture, history, and style of three key neighborhoods. Preservation of Style celebrates the style of early Los Angeles through the lens of its historical buildings apartments. The photographs emphasize the details and juxtaposing styles of European Revival and Art Deco apartment houses. During the housing boom of 1920's Los Angeles, there was a strong push to build apartments in the revival style and bequeath them with European names to make the new city feel old.
