The Mauretania, Milton J. Black, Architect 1934

The Mauretania, Milton J. Black, Architect 1934

A gem of the Streamline Moderne Style, the Mauretania was designed for actor Jack Haley (the 'Tin Man' in 'The Wizard of Oz') and his wife Flo. The pair lived in the penthouse apartment for twenty years. The rounded exterior walls and second floor balconies with railings suggest a luxury ocean-going liner.

 

During the summer of 1960, Senator John F. Kennedy occupied the penthouse during the Democratic National Convention.

 

The Mauretania is located at 520-522 N. Rossmore Avenue in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
