The 1902 Harry Gray house, which once stood at 19 Chester Place (nw corner of Adams and Chester):

The part of the Chester Place Adams entrance gate seen at left remains.

The Stearns-Dockweiler house, still standing at 27 St. James Park, was designed by renowned L.A.
architect John Parkinson in 1900:

The Childs house, which once stood at 3100 West Adams:

As with many demolished houses in West Adams, there is a little bit left:

The Childs wall along Adams--it once had a corner entrance with steps (second Childs photo above),
almost identical to that which survives across Adams at the site of yet another demolished house on
the boulevard:

The corner lot in this shot is apparently now part of the property of the Fitzgerald house, seen at left.
The whole corner has been on the market for $1.9 million for several years. I haven't yet found out what
house once stood on the corner--whatever it was would have been better than an empty lot, of course,
but an empty lot would be preferable to what atrocity I fear may come.
