On holidays I usually try to find a few spare hours to explore the fascinating architecture of Los Angeles. I had seen a few photos of the Angeles Abbey online which whetted my appetite for a closer look. The architecture of the Middle East has always held a curious fascination with me having traveled extensively to Morocco, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The history of the Abbey is somewhat shrouded in mystery. Some sources claim was originally established in 1923 by a shipbuilder named George Clegg. The Long Beach native reportedly sent two architects to India for inspiration and, upon their return, had them build a 1,000-crypt mausoleum resembling the Taj Mahal. The Moorish-style structure features imported Italian marble, intricate tile work, and stained-glass windows and ceilings.

Architect Carl Kay designed the exotic Moorish Revival style apartments in 1926. The popularity of silent screen films set in Moorish lands e.g. The Sheik starring Rudolph Valentino (1921), Tents of Allah (1923), The Thief of Bagdad (1924) starring Douglas Fairbanks and The Arab (1924), starring Ramon Navarro no doubt provided inspiration as well as fascination with the lifestyles associated with the rich and famous for the development of such projects.

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.
