W. L. Locke House in Oakland, California

John Hudson Thomas designed this house in 1911.  The kinship it shares with his Pratt - Thomas house in nearby Berkeley is very clear, although in this design, the influence of the Viennese Secessionists eclipses that of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.  The octagonal bay on the first floor, and the room left of the tower on the second floor also indicate a kind of evolving Prairie School influence to his work.  Thomas explored that Wrightian style more fully in some of his following designs.  Not long afterward, Thomas abandoned these early modernists for well executed, but more conventional, period revival work.  Photo taken in 2000 by Howard J. Partridge.
