Rollin P. Lane house (now The Magic Castle) at 7001 Franklin Ave, Hollywood

Rollin P. Lane house (now The Magic Castle) at 7001 Franklin Ave, HollywoodThe Magic Castle is a prominent private magicians club located on a hillside on Franklin Ave overlooking the Hollywood and Highland complex. The place is a perfect venue for a magic club but I’ve never seen what it looked like originally. I don’t know when this photo was taken of the Rollin P. Lane house, but it was build in 1909 for Rollin B. Lane, who was a banker, real estate developer and philanthropist. From the look of this photo, I’d say it was taken not too long after the mansion was built.

And how it looks like now:
