Regarding Corbin Palms Model H-3.
The Corbin Palms development, built 1953-1955, had 287 homes, some of which have been restored to original condition.
Krisel was a landscape architect as well as an architect. His plan was to provide each home with two Washingtonia palms. But Disney needed palms when building Disneyland in 1955, and bought them from anybody who had a palm tree. As a result, later homes at Corbin Palms made do with olive trees.
