Photograph of the two-story stone house of Charles F. Lummis, "El Alisal", ca.1898-1910. A man and a woman stand facing each other near a door at right. The wooden main door at left bears a decorative initial "CFL". A few trees can be seen towering behind the house. The house was build by Lummis with the help of a 12-year-old Indian boy in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles. Lummis was born at Lynn, Massachusettes in 1859 and died in 1928. He founded the Southwest Museum (Los Angeles) and had an enduring interest in the American southwest and Indians in particular. He was city librarian, 1905-1910. He founded the magazine "Land of Sunshine" later called "Out West".
