Whoever heard of a 'Pirate Show-Boat'? ......Who is Lo Mauro?.....215 S. Spring St. L.A C.........Is L.A.C. the Los Angeles Athletic Club?....

Was 215 S. Spring St. the address of the L.A.C. before it moved to 431 W. Seventh St. in 1912?

Here's 215 S Spring Street in the center of this detail, with the corner of the Hollenbeck Hotel at the right (the Hollenbeck is the subject of the full image - link below). The sign is for the Hoffman Cafe, which was run by Meyer L Polaski from the late-1890s to the early-1900s. The address was also home to a saloon, a billiard hall and a ticket broker around this time.
