When I Think of Home: Images from L.A. ArchivesMain MenuIntroductionThe greater Los Angeles area is on the traditional lands of the Gabrielino/Tongva, Chumash, Fernandeño Tataviam and Yuhaaviatam/Maarenga’yam (Serrano) peoples. We acknowledge their presence here since time immemorial and recognize their continuing connection to the land, to the water and to their ancestors.L.A.

For the Ebell Club's Wilshire Boulevard grand entrance, it is our portal! The 1927 wrought iron masterpiece by John William Chard is revered as one of the finest in the West, rivaling the grandest European ironwork. Using 2000 individual pieces, he turns this unyielding medium into a delicacy, incorporating symbolic elements of a radiating sun, letters E (Ebell) and C (Club), tragedy/comedy masks, a palette and a scroll into the design.plain2020-10-11T18:48:31-07:001927Ebell Club of Los Angeles34.0612048,-118.3248513Wrought iron doorLos Angeles, Calif.John William Chard (Photographer)Stella Castillo3fcfe63ebb36641784421d25ab3a77ed9ea98855

Gracing a Tearoom of The Ebell Club of LA is the very grand Steinway and Sons grand piano dated 1884. Gifted to the Ebell in 1960, it appears to have original parts. Soundboards are made from Sitka spruce from Alaska, and other wooden components, such as rims, are sourced from Canadian maple. Since its inception, Steinway has numbered every piano, making their instruments’ genealogy traceable.plain2020-10-12T10:23:21-07:0010/01/1884The Ebell Club of Los AngelesPianoLos Angeles, Calif.Steinway & SonsCurtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e

Donated by members and community women since the club’s 1894 founding, the collection reflects what was worn by women of means who shopped local stores like Bullocks and Robinson’s, with some dressmaker and home sewn 1890s through 1900s tea dresses, 1920s evening and daywear and many 1930s-1970s styles.2020-09-30T15:38:55-07:00Ebell Club of Los AngelesCostume collectionDressmaker, home-sewn, local LA retail store labels for dresses, suits, hats, shoes, handbags, suitsCurtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e
