Tod Ford Bungalows
Ocean Park, California

The Greenes prepared plans in February 1901 for two bungalows to be built in Ocean Park (now part of Santa Monica) for David Tod Ford, Sr., president of the Youngstown Iron and Steel Co. Although these bungalows were never built, this was the beginning of the Greenes' fruitful relationship with the Ford family. Tod Ford Sr. had several connections to the Greene & Greene firm. His son, Freeman Ford, commissioned the Greenes to design his own house and worked again with them professionally in his position as the Vice-President of the Pasadena Ice Company. Ford also introduced the Greenes to Mrs. Henry M. Robinson, for whom the firm would build a large house.
