1942, Los Angeles Bureau of Power and Light. 508–526 Ash St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

The Los Angeles Bureau of Power and Light (see next entry) built this complex of five duplexes around the corner from its Boulder City offices. Arranged in a U-shaped plan opening toward the street, the one-story buildings have brick walls rising from a concrete foundation. Though simple, the duplexes have well-designed features, including full-length front porches supported by pairs of square posts, bay windows on stone foundations, and pairs of porthole windows.
