Los Angeles is already madly in love with the Hollyhock House, Frank Lloyd Wright's first Los Angeles house, a prototype for California Modernism, and a pretty magical hilltop spread with beautiful views of Griffith Observatory and Hollywood. After a five-year restoration, the city-owned house reopened Friday afternoon for a full 24 hours of tours, as Friday the 13 turned into Valentine's Day, and "as many as a thousand people at a time" lined up to get inside, reports the LA Times. The line started forming around 2 pm, hours before opening, and stayed long all night, with crowds coming through even in the small hours (and everyone allowed to take pictures just this once). Here's a look at all those devotees, in roughly chronological order, and you can take our virtual tour of the early-1920s Hollyhock right over here. The house will be open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am to 4 pm from now on, with a $7 fee for adults.
