City Plate - Palm Springs

$50.00
Part of our sixth series of City Plates.  The theme of this sixth collection is "American Dreams." Each of the cities in the series (Boston, San Francisco, Hollywood, and Palm Springs) has inspired the spirit of the American dream.  Whether it was freedom from religious persecution, the promise of fortune and fame, or the desire for a golden age of leisure that spurred the growth of these four cities, they are all landmarks—historically and architecturally— that represent the persistence of a national ethos full of ambition and optimism.

This desert city became a recreational and health retreat for vacationers both famous and infamous alike, seeking dry heat and seclusion.  Residents and architects embraced the open air climate and lifestyle, engendering the design style of “Desert Modernism."  Nestled up against the dramatic San Jacinto mountains, the cityscape is distinctive for its collection of notable historic architecture as well as the remarkable quantity of pools, which are noted on the plate in blue.
