Let's take a closer look.

On the left you can see the L.(?) Watson & Son Meat Market.

And the back tells us this is Glendale CA.

What we don't know is the name of the street.

e_r, I believe we're looking south on Brand Boulevard, between Wilson Avenue (the former 3rd) and Broadway (the former 4th).

Sanborn 1908, LOC

The arrow indicates a location marked "MEAT," which is (I hope) the A. Watson firm of the RPPC.

Remarkably, the view today is almost identical . . .


. . . in as far as there is still a thoroughfare with structures along its side.
