Sears (formerly at Western and Santa Monica) getting a remodel or spruce up? Don't recall seeing the scaffolding before. Before or after awnings?

Here's a better view of the Airport Ground School posted by e_r just over a year ago (I should've known it was already on NLA!). I'm guessing the school moved to larger premises just up the street soon after 1942.

Despite its looks, the Redbury was only built a few years ago. The site was a parking lot for a while before that. I found a picture of early construction on another skyscraperpage thread:

As the title suggests, the Redbury was originally built as the Palihouse, but ran into financial trouble. More info on la.curbed:

The Palihouse construction picture gives a good opportuntity for a side-by-side comparison of the buildings behind.

I'm guessing that you're referring to the Violet Ray gas station - see Tourmaline's post here.

The tall building in the photo above is a fire station which is still there.

I believe the floors are inlaid marble. The main hall is probably one of the most sumptuous public rooms in all of Los Angeles.

Tourmaline's first post on Tanner Motor Livery shows a small picture of how 5639 Sunset looks today. Here's a larger version. It's lost some most of its charm, but is still recognizable as the building above. The current tenant is Jem Motor Corp who sell high-end vehicle brands. From their website: "Come take a step in time of old Hollywood in our 1920's Showroom."

The 320 S Beaudry premises had a very similar design, as can be seen in this photo dating from 1927. The build date near the top of the center section says 1926. The "MUtual 3111" sign is clearly visible.

USC has a second 1927 photo of the building on Beaudry taken at a different angle - see it here.

USC also includes "Deauville" in its tags for these two pictures of The Gable Beach Club, even though that was located at 808 Ocean Front (according to the 1928 Santa Monica Yellow Pages).

There's also the Crescent Bay Yacht Club at Wilshire and Ocean Front, and the Edgewater Club of Southern California at Pico and Ocean Front.

Chuckaluck, what we have here is a McKeen Motor Car built for the Los Angeles and San Diego Beach Railway in 1907 as their road No. 2. Forget the Los Angeles reference. Another turn-of-the-century railroad with champagne dreams and a beer budget, this line was created in 1906 from the merger of several San Diego area railroads. It never managed to get any farther north than La Jolla and went belly up in 1917.

Defined by their "windsplitter" noses, these motor cars were the product of one William R. McKeen and were built from 1901 through 1917. Rather than bore everyone with more details I recommend this link where you will also find a "trolley car" version of a McKeen. Interestingly, these were pretty water tight cars. Even so, The electric version would not have made it to Avalon either, as it operated in the east. ;>)

Also, if you ever find yourself in Carson City, Nevada you can take a ride on a beautifully restored survivor. See: http://museums.nevadaculture.org/ind...415&Itemid=481

Wig-wag were these considered Doodlebugs? My grandfather gave me a book on Doodlebugs,and in it they have a small section for Los Angeles,with the Sante Fe Pasadena Line(which is now the goldline).Also in one of his "Train" magazines it says that most California stations had a grouping of palm trees at every entrance to the station...after looking at a few older stations i noticed thats true(taking the metrolink from la to san bernardino most old stations have them):shrug: but i dont know how true the statement is.

When I mentioned Carpenter's Drive-In at Sunset and Vine, it was because I remembered it from previous posts. There are still some great night-time shots in post #8075 and post #8076, but tovangar2's post #14241 has sadly lost its images. Luckily, the links still work. The circular drive-in in the screengrab dates from after its redesign. The picture below is dated 1945.

I know there were several Carpenter's restaurants (the 1936 CD lists them at 6285 and 6290 Sunset Blvd., 667 S Western Av., 1250 S Vermont Av. and 3201 Wilshire Blvd.). The 1932 picture above includes an invitation to "Visit our barbecue pit at Wilshire and Western".

Is Harry Carpenter's Drive-In open for business here? There's no tower on the roof and the parking lot looks very quiet. I wonder what "Mr. Los Angeles" sold (top left corner).
