Hint: Where Were These Streetlights Glowing in the Late '30s?

New, 10 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!

This nighttime shot of a brightly lit intersection shows a surprisingly quiet-looking street, considering the location. The photo, dated sometime in 1937, shows some landmarks in the background that might be helpful in locating the spot, but the darkness isn't doing potential cornerpotters any favors. Think you know which intersection this is? Tell us in the comments.
