I lived around West Adams from the mid 70's to 2005 and now I'm in the Valley. I have seen tons of great pictures here! I'm also a huge fan of before and after photos as well as old maps. User, Los Angeles Past can tell you since I'm lucky enough to know him personally. OK! I don't want to overstay my intro.

As for the Hotel Christie/Hollywood Inn/Scientology building. I knew it from the first picture, it looked very familliar. It's the current Scientology *ahem/cult* building in Hollywood. It looks like this now.
