A couple weeks ago the Richard Neutra Maxwell House was dragged from Brentwood to Angelino Heights via truckbed, but as LA Observed's Kevin Roderick tell us, this was once a somewhat common practice in LA: Many mansions were cut up and rolled from Downtown to Beverly Hills and other neighborhoods. A neon-sign pioneer named Earle C. Anthony moved his home from Wilshire and Berendo to Bedford Drive in 1923. Coincidentally, this was the same guy who first drove a car through LA streets.
