Original Booklet on The Picture Bridge at the Langham Huntington, Pasadena AP1507
What better moment than now to acquire this astonishing piece of memorabilia? In lovely condition. Because...
The Langham Huntington, Pasadena has just unveiled its newly restored and rehabilitated iconic Picture Bridge, a historic landmark feature on the grounds for nearly 90 years!
The centerpiece of the restoration project is the installation of replicas of the Bridge’s original oil paintings by Frank M. Moore, which give name to the landmark. Paintings were added to the Bridge in 1933 that serve as a living storybook for the state of California by illustrating its many jewels. In 2013, after more than 80 years of exposure to the outdoor elements, all of the oil-paintings were carefully removed from the Bridge to halt their deterioration and then stored in a climate controlled art-storage facility where they continue to reside. Facsimiles of the original paintings which date back to 1933, have been developed, installed and once again grace the Picture Bridge. Picture Bridge underwent a multi-million-dollar structural upgrade amid the property’s temporary suspension of operations during the pandemic.
