This postcard, circa 1916, reveals the influence of Goodhue’s San Diego Exposition buildings on even the smallest homes:  Note the repeated use of spiral columns--a frequent Churrigueresque detail--in the form of paired stucco appliqués on either side of the entrance, as well as in the edge of the archway itself and in the center mullion of the living room window.  The walled patio and the colorful awnings carried on spear-tipped stanchions are also favorite features.  Postcards of the era frequently depicted Southern California homes, as the area’s abundant sunshine and lush vegetation were long considered a novelty in the eastern half of the nation.
