There are no addresses listed for the houses, so each location has been researched by first using 1910 Federal Census records for the address, then confirming the outline of the houses using Sanborn Fire Maps for Los Angeles and surrounding suburbs. Another useful aid in finding details has been copies of the Los Angeles Herald through 1910 that are posted at http://cdnc.ucr.edu/cdnc.
The headline banner for the blog is an early view of Chester Place, Los Angeles taken from a postcard. Prominently featured is the Posey/Doheny mansion, which may still be toured today. The complete postcard is shown below:

Photos of the houses were scanned at 300 dpi, then reduced to 1600 pixels horizontally, and uploaded using Picasa.
