Really great photos! It's a shame that these Victorian buildings in LA were all destroyed. I think many people don't realize that LA had some really old buildings, and I wouldn't doubt that those same people think that LA is a "new" city that only developed after WWII. What they don't realize was that many earlier buildings were destroyed, either because of freeway construction, earthquakes, or just because a newer building was desired; or as in the case of Bunker Hill, "redevelopment."
