I've often wondered about that building. The old newspaper article you posted described it as a nondescript building.
Did they not notice the rather cool penthouse on top? Go figure.
Well, someone with the 1971 mindset would probably see its best features as its worst. That the Southland by that time had lost its lovely, distinctive parapets and finials probably made it more attractive to the eye of the day...
