We've seen the Zamboanga here before, but have we seen these shots? It was at 3838 West Slauson.

Tetsu, I meant to compliment earlier on your find in Lincoln Heights.

Thanks, e_r! Really was nothing but pure luck. All the same, glad I was able to locate it.

I wish we had addresses on all of these great old Pasadena homes you've been finding, e_r. I figure they're all long gone, but even if there was one or two still standing in an altered condition, it would be cool to know they're not all completely vanished.

Another Beverly-Fairfax puzzlement? Do any of the aerial photos depict this expansive enterprise? No reason for the recently discussed solitary Gilmore Station to coexist with this.

Several prior posts also included photos of Gilmore's self-serve station. See e.g.,http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ostcount=11613 and http://www.skyscraperpage.com/forum/...ostcount=19396



Per DWP:
Quote:

Gilmore Self-Service Station located on the south side of Beverly Boulevard east of Fairfax Avenue. View is looking west toward Fairfax. The Fairfax Theater sign (northwest corner of Fairfax and Beverly) is seen above and behind the Gilmore sign. The tower sign for Herberts Drive-In Restaurant (southeast corner of Fairfax and Beverly) can barely be made out in the upper left of photo. CBS Television City would be built at this corner in 1952.

All that's left today is the Farmers Market, although South Gilmore Lane acts as a reminder to the past.

I am intrigued by the C-shaped building at the bottom right of Gilmore Stadium. In addition to the farmer's market, this building and the foliage that surrounds it also remain from the old photo to the new. Zooming in on Google Maps, it is still marked as A.F. Gilmore Co.; is that an administration building for the Farmer's Market? There may be one or two small buildings around it that are also as old.

NE corner Los Angeles and Winston
 
For many years it was home to the Excelsior Laundry. The LA County Assessor says the building dates to 1895. Here it is on January 1, 1907, behind the two small houses:

Stillmore on the Gilmore...


It looks to me like after it was at the southeast corner of Beverly & Fairfax that it may have been moved south on Fairfax, with Herbert's Drive-In replacing it at the Beverly corner. Notice also what appear to be Beverly/Fairfax street signs...


https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-f...2520AM.bmp.jpg

The building at right is the one indicated by the red arrow below...


https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-g...FAIRARROWS.jpg


https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5...2520AM.bmp.jpg

You can see the stadium behind the station when it was at 7870 Beverly...


https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-5...2520AM.bmp.jpg

If the station was picked up and moved down Fairfax (and not a new one), it was turned 90 degrees.

In city directories, V. L. Anderson, whose name appears on the station at 7870 Beverly, becomes merely a "gas sta atdt" by 1939...no indication if he may have moved with the building.


Perhaps there were other branches in areas not covered by the L.A. CD (and perhaps we've seen them here), but in the 1942 edition there is only one Herbert's listed, at 7870 Beverly Blvd... .

I think you're right, GW. Here's a close-up from one of the USC pictures I posted yesterday which shows the location near the Farmers Market from a different angle.

I wonder how many people would show up for an air race today? When I was four years old it was the greatest joy to see a steam engine train pull in to the station. All of that seems so quaint today.

In the photo above we see thousands of people mesmerized to see these slow moving planes fly by.

My grandmother used to tell of the thrill of riding in an automobile in 1910.
