I grew up just a few doors down from a Tiki apartment building in Canoga Park on DeSoto Ave, just north of Sherman Way on the east side of the street. In the 70s, I remember it having a lot of plants and foliage around, very tropical looking with an A-frame and I'm sure the rest was pretty Polynesian too. But I think it has been severely (and horribly) remodeled, especially after the earthquake.

Just south of that building were 2 small pre-war houses (there used to be tons in the neighborhood), but even my old house (right behind the mini-mall on the northeast corner) is now gone.

This pic is from 1961. Also note the DeSoto Motel and Steakhouse in the lower right, Bruno's Pizza at the right end of the mini-mall just above that (it's still there!) This is before they widened that part of DeSoto Ave.
