I didn't get the slide but I thought I could scrub it up a bit.

Taken atop Niblack/Lawless's (of Luckman Assoc) Signal Oil bldg, I'd wager, which opened at Wilshire & Beaudry in the spring of '60; it was a curiosity that Signal had a heliport atop, which may have taken our amateur photographer there.

Oh, and I have ulterior motives in sharing this. Somehow I let this slide slip by me a couple nights ago on the eBay! Did anyone here win it? It's worth puh-lenty to me if you're willing to pass it on.

Looking northeast from 6th Street and Beaudry, ca.1964
