Hint: Where Was This Huge Drugstore Circa 1930?

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 stretch of road is much busier now than it was back *in the 1930s (not exactly 1930) when this picture was taken. Notice the speed limit then: 20 miles per hour. You'd be lucky to go that fast during rush hour now. The Sontag Drugstore in the middle of the image was one of the largest drugstores in America when it was built, but now it's made way for bigger, taller things.
