Thanks for the correction.

I have limited personal topographic knowledge of the area. Lapl's notes identify image as Spahn. However, to your point, other sources identify same image as Barker, strongly suggesting LAPL's image is misidentified. FWIW, sources state Spahn was approximately 500 acres. Almost enough room to conceal Judge Crater, abandoned Griffith Park structures, the 645 Hill Street Kodak Building and the Richfield Building - without much notice.
