There is one other reason I wanted to post it.
I've been intrigued by the rather large elongated/horizontal building
in the distance. It almost looks like a train shed or livery stables.
Whatever it is, it's quite impressive for this early date.

Does anyone know what it is? Scott, Beaudry, Sopas_ej, GayloreWilshire?

Hmmm. At first I thought it might be the covered bridge shown crossing the Los Angeles River at Macy Street in the 1877 bird's eye map.

Library of Congress

Given the vantage point and angle of the photo in question, however, it can't be that bridge.

I vote for it being a train shed - and a very large and fancy one, at that.
