Below: The view north toward the Hollywood Hills.
When I lived in L.A. one of my favorite buildings was the white building on the left in this photograph.
I recently found out that it no longer exists.

This is where I found the photos.

Good Lord, That last photo (of the white bldg. you liked) is of "Hotel Hell," the once grand Garden Court Hotel on Hollywood Blvd. near Grauman's Chinese, where old-timers like Mack Sennett lived (well after his glory days). I visited someone there in the early 70's when it was still a residential hotel, rather shabby but not a dump. It eventually became a derelict squat house and doper haven before being demolished in the 80's or 90's.
