Hint: Where Was This Owl Drugstore in the Late 1930s?

New, 20 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!

Fill your prescriptions and stock up on all the frocks you'll ever need in the shops on this neat little block. In the late 1930s, the Owl Drugstore, a once-popular chain, had its namesake owl posted up above its signage and a row of specialized shops (Bootery!). This row isn't exactly at an intersection, but we're betting our eagle-eyed readers can pinpoint where it is today just by sight: the LAPL photo archive notes, "The Colonial Revival style building covering these addresses was built in 1934 and is still standing." Have you seen it? Leave a comment!
