Milton J. Black, Architect. Victor M. Carter Residence, 1935. Milton J. Black's most notable work in Los Angeles spanned several architectural styles, from a Spanish Colonial Revival residence for film star Dolores del Rio, the Deco Mauretania Apartments in Hancock Park, and the legendary hot dog stand, Tail 'o the Pup. Here, one of his rare residential works survives on a quiet cul-de-sac street in Los Feliz. The aerodynamic curves and the more elegant elements of the Streamline Moderne style are intact, with original casement windows, exterior copper trim and street address, interior magnesite staircase with chrome handrail, and built in powder room vanity. A porthole window in the front door invites you into the elegance of the first floor formal dining room and the step down living room with fireplace and curved ceiling detail. 4 bedrooms, with a 2nd story terrace off the master bedroom, 4 bathrooms, den with built-in bar, and terraced backyard with fruit trees.
