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!

Hardly a cool-you-off kind of fountain, but this comely lady and the water feature she inhabited are nonetheless lovely. She had a great location, too—near a deli, coffee shop, cigar counter, and flower mart that were all in one building. This 1920s-era photo shows her surroundings—a new structure at the time, but gone now. Know where this fountain once flowed? Let us know in the comments.
