He was obviously proud of the hilltop house on Lemoyne Street because it showed up in some of his published photos, including the cover of House Beautiful. Parker also used his family as well as neighbors in the shots, according to the Echo Park Historical Society:
"Maynard and his wife, Annie May Parker, moved to Echo Park in the late 1930s. They spent some time on Delta Street before building their lifelong home in 1939. That home, which stands at 2230 Lemoyne Street, soon showed up on the cover of home and garden magazines – along with Maynard's two daughters, who could be seen picking flowers or having a picnic. His daughter Ann showed up on a World War II era cover of House Beautiful. Eventually, his neighbors got into the act as well. Beverly Graham, who has lived in Echo Park since 1933, remembers posing for Parker as he shot various outdoor garden scenes. 'He loves his hill,' Beverly Graham recalled."
