1920. San Marino, CA: c. 1920.

§ A fine portrait of Henry E. Huntington in front of the bronze doors of the library building on his estate in San Marino, California. In the picture Huntington is about 70. A note attached to the Huntington's copy of the photograph indicates it was taken "around 1920," in other words, just after Henry and Arabella Huntington signed the trust document that transformed their private estate into one of the greatest independent libraries in the world. His look of kingly satisfaction might well be understood. Item #123255
