Mauretania, a 1930s classic art deco building designed by Milton J. Black. That ten-unit building, which received the 2009 Hancock Park Historical Society's award for Most Significant Restoration, was erected in 1934 by actor Jack Haley, who played the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz. It was named for a White Star ocean liner that broke the transatlantic-crossing record in 1919.
