Hint: Where Was This Bustling Shopping Street in the Late '30s?

New, 6 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 photo from 1938 shows a street busy with pedestrian traffic, buses, and cars (and is that a three-wheeled motorcycle?). Today, this pavement is still pounded by retail-lovers: it's a major destination for shoppers on foot. Think you know where this intersection is? Let us know in the comments.
