Notes on the Geography of The Western United States: Los Angeles 4: Photo 2
An older vision of Pasadena--and California--was threatened if not destroyed by the growth of the automotive metropolis. That older vision is suggested by El Alisal ("the Sycamore"), the Arroyo Seco house built by Charles F. Lummis between 1896 and 1910. Lummis had walked from Cinncinnati to Los Angeles in 1884, become city editor of the Los Angeles Times, and founded both the Southwest Museum and the Arroyo Seco Foundation. Today his house is a museum, open a few hours weekly. You can hear the parkway traffic as it speeds by.
