Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2165
Building/structure dates: 1912 initial construction
Significance: These four cottages on Albatross Street provide excellent examples of the work of architect Irving John Gill. It appears that instead of being a project which developed over a long period, as was previously thought, all the houses were planned about the same time (circa 1912) as part of a comprehensive scheme. Some of the houses were not built for several years afterwards, and some were never completed, but what was accomplished follows closely the plans established about 1912. The houses are notable for their careful planning and detailing, their integration into a steep canyon site, and the use of landscaping to insure privacy.
