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!
This week's spin in the Wayback Machine takes us to this imposing corner, where we find a 1920s-era Spanish Colonial Revival building—shown here in a photo taken in 1937—that represented a very important part of California culture. The three-story building had two prominent Los Angeles architects and is now a landmark, but where is it, and what is it? If you think you know, tell us in the comments!
