Edgar and Anna Chamberlain House, 2402 W. State Street, Boise, Idaho
Built for Chamberlain by Stanley Jensen for $6,000.00 in 1935 this is perhaps the only truly “Zigzag” Art Deco house in all of Idaho. The pitched roof is original and no doubt intended to combat the heavy snows of an Idaho winter. In 1937, the Idaho Statesman newspaper described the house and noted that “Windows that run around the corners are a feature of this modernistic home, demonstrating one of the new ideas in house construction.” The home also features interior Art Deco elements including stepped arches.

Evans-Cucich House at 306 Peachtree-Battle Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia, August 14, 1956.
Envelope description: “Frankel, 306 Peachtree Battle Ave.” The 1956 Lane Brothers Assignment Book (p. 312) describes the commission: “Louis Frankel, 306 Peachtree Battle Ave.; photo of 3 house.” Photographer listed as “Sandy.” Now called the Evans-Cucich House at 306 Peachtree Battle Ave. It was built in 1935 and designed by architect A.F.N. Everett; it is one of the few Art Deco homes in Atlanta

Monument to victims of the 1935 hurricane. With hurricane season starting up and Beryl off the coast of Georgia, South Carolina, etc., thought this was appropriate to post tonight. Is it not a beautiful monument? Islamorada is in the Florida Keys, just south of Key Largo.
