465 N. Laurel To-day

Close scrutiny of 465 N. Laurel reveals one pertinent design feature: the absence of shrubbery. The homeowners apparently learned a valuable lesson—prickly pear cacti and Italian cypress are decidedly bereft of any and all baby-concealment properties.

This house has some seriously bad 1940s mojo. Three years before, it was occupied by the Tait family, who lost a 20-year-old son, George S. Tait Jr., a former basketball star at Fairfax High, in the in June 4, 1944, crash of a B-24 during a combat training mission at March Field in Riverside.
