Created/Published
Documentation compiled after 1933.

Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2257-I
Building/structure dates: 1928
Significance: Although a feature of this type was conceived in some form as early as 1925, other projects took priority. More so than any other project, the swimming pool's incomplete state clearly illustrates how external pressures forced Johnson to cease construction well before he had planned.
