The Westjoy Dance Studio at 8844 Wilshire and the Nacy White Studio at 8846 Wilshire both in this charming little building.

below: If you look down the block there is yet another Dance Studio (I can't quite make out the name).
I was surprised to see one of those huge Examiner signs in the far distance. I didn't realize that there were any in this area.

below: You can see the Examiner sign slightly better in this photo. You also get a glimpse of a very nice building across the street.....perhaps a supermarket?

below: LAPL says the building is still there but highly remodeled. Here's 8844 today. It looks sad to me with it's big-shouldered neighbors.

I wouldn't have guessed this was the same building.

G_W, I'm amazed you found the same house on Miramonte Blvd. that was featured in the 1907 ad. Good job!
