The Ladies' Sun Parlor (finished by March 1925) is visible at far left, with an automobile in the driveway. The two-story, eleven-room Spanish-style clubhouse is located at 3301 Via Campesina in Val Monte. The golf course, which was designed by George C. Thomas Jr. and built by William P. Bell, opened on November 15, 1924, with landscaping designed by the Olmsted brothers. (Photo & caption from the Palos Verdes History - Local History collection on Flicr).

Nice car! Yours? It was pretty nice back then, but is even more upscale now.

I'm smitten with the Then. Here's a look at the Altadena Town & Country Club: http://mraltadena.com/altadena%20history/atcc.html

Built in 1911.

It looks sort of the same...refreshed... I'm a sucker for 'then' photos.

Funny, in this case I'm not certain what's an improvement. The before, with that silly arched entrance (with a depth of 6 inches?) kind of relates to Day of the Locust

Very interesting to see the old photo and what the place looks like now. I much prefer the Then as well, but that yellow car is sure purty.
