Well, LA, I've been looking for pictures of West Adams/University for years--to me, one of the most interesting and overlooked areas of old L.A. Vintage shots of houses east of Figueroa, other than perhaps on Adams, are very rare. There are actually quite a few old houses still standing in the area you're talking about--perhaps hundreds. You'd get a better idea of the residential character once there by driving around, or Google Street Viewing... here are a few examples. (Alot of the early lamp standards are still in place.)

East side of Hill Street, just south of 39th

Long one of my favorites...southeast corner of Grand and 33rd
