Hint: Where Could You See This Downtown View in 1938?

New, 6 comments

Welcome to Cornerspotter, a weekly Curbed game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into Los Angeles and its past!

What a bustling little hub we have here. The intersection this photo's coming up on is surrounded by "Signal and Gilmore Oil service stations, a Foster and Kleiser billboard for Nucoa margarine, a sandwich shop, a linoleum store ... and Stewart's market, a liquor store." Now, it's a little less of a retail zone, but there's a lot more housing and ... let's say "open space." Think you know the intersection captured in this photo? Tell us in the comments!
