In September, 1959, the presitigious Los Angeles-based magazine Arts & Architecture magazine published an article about Eichler Homes titled "House for Planned Community by A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons". It describes floor plan 1224 (ours is 1224R, the "flipped" version of the plan) and features photos by Ernie Braun. Go to the article.

An Eichler owner in Sunnyvale loaned me color copies of an article published in Family Circle magazine that is about our Eichler model. The date of the issue is unknown, but it is probably late 1950's. The text is typical marketing fluff but the pictures are priceless. Taken by Ernie Braun, the principal Eichler photographer in the 50's and 60's, they are unusual in that they are in color. Go to the article.

The November 1959 issue of House & Home, described as "America's Biggest Industry Monthly for America's Biggest Industry", referring to merchant building, contained an article titled "24 Quality Houses for 1959". One of the featured houses was an Eichler model designed by Anshen & Allen, a design that was used in the Highlands. The article has a brief text description of the house, five Ernie Braun photos, and two full pages of architectural drawings. Go to the article.
