Notice Bullock's Wilshire in the far distance.
Now, ethereal, you know it pains me to correct you...but I hope you will see it as correcting the historical record.... This is actually a shot of 7th Street at the south side of MacArthur Park, looking northwest. While Bullock's tower appears to be along the street in the picture, actually it is not. The LARY "R" line followed 7th--if 7th continued straight without its westerly jog at Hoover, it would run directly to the Bullock building's northwest corner. (Btw, on its westbound run, the "R" line followed 7th to Vermont to 3rd to La Brea.)
