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, dated 1927, shows a large and stunning complex (which includes a theater with pipe organ) that is still around to this day, though now obscured by a lot more foliage. Amelia Earhart made an appearance at the compound to talk about crashing in Hawaii just a few months before disappearing forever. Think you know where this is? Give us the name or the nearest intersection in the comments!
