Hint: Where Were These Fashionable Pedestrians in 1937?

New, 14 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!

The main street running across the bottom of this circa-1937 photo is today a very busy and walkable thoroughfare, as it was when the photo was snapped. What has changed? Well, if this photo were taken today, most of the people walking this section of the street would probably have a couple large shopping bags. Also altered: the architecture. One building that still survives is the one immediately on the left; it's about 100 years old now. Think you know where this intersection is? Let us know in the comments!
