Cornerspotted: Wilshire and La Cienega in Beverly Hills

New, 6 comments

It's in Beverly Hills! Noplacelikehome was this week's Cornerspotter winner, correctly guessing that this 1930s photo was taken near Wilshire and La Cienega, with the Fox Theater in the background to the east. A lot of people knew that the Fox is now the Saban Theatre, which was restored to all its Art Deco glory a few years back, but only Boo had information on the old Sontag Drugstore, which opened in 1936. These days the southeast corner of this intersection is home to the old Great Western Savings building, which was once headquarters for Larry Flynt's fine adult publication, Hustler.
