One of the best parts of the Bullocks Wilshire building is the beautiful "transportation" mural on the porte cochere.
Since most costumers at the time would arrive by vehicle, the most appealing entrance was placed in the rear.
Valets in livery welcomed patrons and parked their cars.

Thanks for the correction GaylordWilshire on the small Silverwoods store.
The USC archive had the location as Sunset Boulevard.
Hopefully, that art deco beauty is still somewhat intact under that hideous remodeling job.
Perhaps it will be rescued one day. (that is, if it is in fact the same building)

I like that huge photo of the Union Oil Building.
