Robert Winter and David Gebhard, in their definite work about L.A. Architecture 'An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles', cleverly describe the Sparkletts Drinking Water Company in Eagle Rock as a mosque of the first water'. The Moorish style building was designed by architect Richard D. King between 195 and 1929. The 1971 Sylmar Earthquake nearly toppled its minarets; they were removed and have not been replaced.

The Sparkletts Drinking Water Corporation building is located at 4500 Lincoln Avenue in Eagle Rock. Please do not use this image in any media without my permission. © All rights reserved.
