Firm Notes

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Parkinson and Bergstrom designed some of Downtown Los Angeles, CA's most important skyscrapers. The Citizens National Bank Building in Los Angeles was one of the pair last works together. A note in the Pacific Coast Architect of 10/1915 reported: "The Citizens National Bank Building was designed and constructed under the supervision of John Parkinson & Edwin Bergstrom, Architects. While this building was being completed the partnership agreement, which had existed for ten years between the members of this firm, terminated, and each has opened a separate office for the practice of architecture, John Parkinson in the Security Building and Edwin Bergstrom in the Citizens National Bank Building, in Los Angeles, Cal." (See "Current Notes and Comment," Pacific Coast Architect, vol. X, no. 4, 10/1915, p. 183.)

In 1913, the pair maintained an office in Room #1035 of the building at 510 South Spring Street. (SeeLos Angeles, California, City Directory, 1913, p. 2188.)
