California Dingbat Apartment Buildings

1-15 | 16-16

dingbat n. (colloq.): the classic wood and stucco box apartment of the 1950s and '60s, primarily found near the freeways in Los Angeles and environs.

With names like "Tiki" and "Bel Air", these apartments with their distinctive California style seemed to create an air of exotica or luxury living at affordable prices. It's getting harder to find these kinds of buildings in such good original condition. Many have had their coolness mangled by strange remodeling and facades.
