This old cottage could almost fit in the living rooms of the houses on either side. Size isn’t everything.

Circa 1905

Early Marsh & Russell apartments in the old canal district. Like several other, contemporary Venice designs, the building is evocative of the Prairie School architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright and his mentor, Louis Henri Sullivan.

Circa 1908

This house reportedly stood in the canal district where it was inhabited by the Kinney family from 1908 to 1920. Willed to Irwin Tabor, Kinney’s black driver, upon Kinney’s death, the house was moved to Oakwood because blacks weren’t allowed to live in certain sections of Venice.
