Most of the houses built in the Wood Streets were built in the late teens through the 1920s with streets including Larchwood, Beechwood, Elmwood, Linwood, Oakwood, Rosewood, Homewood, Bandini, Ramona, Chapman/Castle Reagh, as well as sections of Magnolia and Brockton Avenues. The importance of the Wood Streets Historic District stems from its cohesive representation of typical Southern California residential architectural styles that were prevelant from 1916-1940. Much of the original environment, the original sidewalks, driveways, and street furnishings, are still intact today adding to it's appeal.
I have lived in the Wood Streets for many years in a home built in 1920. I love the area, it's rich history and it's architecture.
