The Mauretania

I found the top pic here while looking for shots of the big apartment buildings on Rossmore, and was intrigued by what I thought was an Art Deco commercial building, out of place in a residential 'hood. Then I wondered if it was some sort of Art Deco Unity Temple, a forgotten L.A. jewel. Anyway, it looked larger to me than it turns out that it is--I didn't recognize it as The Mauretania, which, wonderfully, still stands (at 520-522 N. Rossmore). It's a building I've read about for years, one that has a great Hollywood history, best told here:
