The Spanish Colonial Revival style was predominant and most-favored in Southern California during the 1920s, largely a result of its proximity to Mexico and Latin America, and the romanticism attached to it from Hollywood movies and popular novels, such as Ramona, written by Helen Hunt Jackson and set in Southern California, which had more than 300 printings and has been adapted for film four times.. A play adaptation has been performed annually outdoors since 1923.The duplex located at 3050-3052 Castle Street in the Primrose Hill section of Silver Lake is exemplary of the style. Mixed in with its mid-century neighbors, its one of the many charming aspects of the eclectic neighborhood that has made Silver Lake such a desirable neighborhood to live in or just to visit.
