Angulo Roof Tile History

By Edhat Subscriber

Does anyone know the history of the Angulo Roof Tile Company? They made terra cotta roof tiles for many houses in town.

I'm not sure what specific info you are looking for. If you go to http://www.freepatentsonline.com/1564810.pdf you will see a copy of Reducindo F. Angulo's 1922 patent. He is listed as the inventer of the specific method of handmaking tiles. Ancestry.com lists a person by that name as a tile maker, residing at 229 E Canon Perdido in 1920, and also indicates that a person by that same name resided at 228 E De la Guerra in 1929 and had a spouse named Leonila Angulo. Both addresses are according to the Santa Barbara City Directory. Limited info seems to be available, with the exception of the name of a company called Angulo Tile Company Santa Barbara & Reseda that made floor and roof tile. What specific info are you seeking?

Hi Jewel, thanks for posting! I found a bit, too. I mostly was curious where this company fit in with all the Spanish terra cotta roof tile sources from the early 1900s. I was curious, as you have determined if the owner was local. This came about because I was knocking down a paper wasp nest at my neighbor's house and for the first time ever, noticed the name stamped on the edge of the tiles...funny how details pop out after years of "seeing" something. (I pondered if others over time have found these roof tiles make too superb a wasp habitat)!
Anyway, thanks this info is very helpful. It's fun to read about the bits and pieces that make up our gorgeous Santa Barbara built surroundings.

PS Oh my gosh, if you look at the 2nd address Jewel provided for Mr. Angulo's residence, it's still there--a Victorian, but covered in a very thick layer of....
terra cotta roof tiles! It's a very odd juxtaposition of styles!!! The first address Jewel provided is a vacant lot. Wonder what happened to the house...the retaining wall is still there, but the lot is empty.
