Aunt Julia

Restoration experts and architectural preservation students gathered at the Gamble House in Pasadena to talk about how the structure has been preserved. This is the bedroom of Julia Huggins, sister of homeowner Mary Gamble. Huggins, known as Aunt Julia, lived in the house until she died. The wicker furniture in the room was designed for her. The Gamble House, celebrating its 100th birthday in 2008, was built for David and Mary Gamble. Since 1966, USC has operated the house in partnership with the city of Pasadena. The 8,000-square-foot structure was deeded to the city by Gamble family members.Gary Friedman / Los Angeles Times
