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.

Occasional events, like this church society party, were held there, but the home was largely empty. By the time the Temples reunited in summer 1929 after the children graduated from their respective schools, financial problems worsened. The next spring, the house was leased and the family moved, soon to lose it in 1932 during the Great Depression.plain2020-10-11T18:51:47-07:001928Workman & Temple Family Homestead MuseumCopyright has not been assigned to Workman & Temple Family Homestead Museum.34.144553,-118.1645887Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum, City of Industry, CaliforniaLa Puente, Calif.UnknownStella Castillo3fcfe63ebb36641784421d25ab3a77ed9ea98855

The Spanish Colonial Revival house, filled with references to the family and California history, was intended to be a family home for years to come, but the death of Laura Gonzalez Temple was an obvious blow to those plans. Catholic Bishop Cantwell blesses the home in her memory on the first anniversary of her death in December 1923.plain2020-10-12T10:28:48-07:0012/28/1923Workman & Temple Family Homestead MuseumCopyright has not been assigned to Workman & Temple Family Homestead Museum.34.0200102,-117.9665523Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum, City of Industry, CaliforniaLa Puente, Calif.UnknownCurtis Fletcher3225f3b99ebb95ebd811595627293f68f680673e

Temple II, November 11, 19242In addition to Mrs. Temple's death, the four children were away at school during the five-year construction process and for two more years after it was finished in 1927. This November 1924 letter from daughter Agnes to her brother Thomas discusses progress on the house during a visit from her during a time when she attended a girl's school in Los Angeles. Surviving letters show the eagerness of the family to enjoy their home, but conditions dramatically changed.plain2020-10-12T14:14:40-07:0011/11/1924Workman & Temple Family Homestead MuseumNo Copyright- in public domainWorkman and Temple Family Homestead Museum, City of Industry, CaliforniaLos Angeles, Calif.Agnes E.
