Have we seen this photo of the Le Grande Station under constructon since e_r posted it way back on page 166?

Here's another early L. A. landmark under construction . . . Hazard's Pavilion, on the NE corner of 5th and Olive, c. March 1887:

The Seaver Center has the same photo, GPF.4865, here.

This June 4, 1905, Los Angeles Times article on the demolition of Hazard's Pavilion included this photo, which appears to
show the building in about the same stage of construction as in the photo above:

Here are two random photos of the exterior of Hazard's Pavilion:

SCWHR-P-002.2-2273R at Seaver Center

I believe this one is c. 1895-1902:

I don't believe we've seen this photo of the inside of Hazard's Pavilion when it was host to the 1891 State Citrus Fair.
The signs on the dispays in the foreground say HANDS OFF:

Islandora/UCLA (zoomable when the link is available, generally during business hours in California)

Here's an enlargement of the far end of the stage, with the new L. A. County Courthouse re-created in citrus:

I think this photo of the inside of Hazard's Pavilion taken on May 4, 1903, has been posted here before:

Hazard's Pavilion was torn down in 1905 and replaced by the Temple/Philharmonic/Clune's Auditorium. From that
same Sunday, June 4, 1905, Times article is this information on the demolition of Hazard's Pavilion:
