News and information about the historic Gaylord Apartment building
Monday, October 2, 2017
When the Gaylord opened in 1924, it spared no expense in it's custom made furnishings, rugs, decorative lighting, fireplace, posts & beams, as seen here in this photo from 1924 of the Gaylord Lounge (this space is now occupied by the EyeMax eyeglass store). Our lobby originally extended through the HMS Bounty all the way over to EyeMax. This attention to detail is what drew the upper echelon of society, from
across the country, to come and purchase apartments in the Gaylord,
along with Hollywood industry types. By 1930, the Gaylord co-op disbanded (one of the first co-op residences established in Los Angeles).
