Leonard John (L.J.) Rose (1827-1899) and his son Guy Rose (1867-1925) both left lasting legacies in the San Gabriel Valley. L.J. had many successful, and unsuccessful, ventures throughout his life. His fascinating story includes the naming of a train station called Lamanda Park, the creation of Sunny Slope Water Company, and the naming of the City of Rosemead. Guy studied art and painting in the U.S. and France, eventually becoming one of California’s premier plein air artists. In detailing the lives of the Roses, historian Diana Loomis will share her recent research on the fascinating story of entrepreneur L.J. Rose and his artist son Guy. This lecture will take place at a 1913 historic home designed by architects Arthur and Alfred Heineman.
