Now I'm sad about the young rat catcher and shoeless boy.



Kudos to CBD's father for paying for haircuts.
Kudos to Martin Pal for giving the dejected boy a Valentine.

My father paid for haircuts for neighbor boys.
The old barber shop we visited is still there. It used to be called Rudy's. I recall there were 3 barbers on duty. The owner was from Germany and always gave kids hard candy. The shop is now called Amigos.
My mom took me there once and when my haircut was done I went outside. She gave me a severe scolding for not saying ''thank you'' to the barber.

Google Street View

Schools don't change location all that often, so I'm pretty sure that's the location of the picture.

(ER, your photos are not displaying.)
The original photo is of the wood framed Los Feliz School. It burned down. Then a concrete/stone school was built in its place. It was destroyed by the Long Beach earthquake. Don't recall years for the above. By the time I attended elementary school there from 1955 to 1962, it was the same building as now fronts New Hampshire. There are more buildings on the school lot than when I was there AND the school is now a magnet school. The first wooden building fronted on Prospect Avenue/Hollywood Blvd. The other two versions fronted on New Hampshire.

Academy Awards in Hollywood today! Here's a photo listed as taken on Sunset Blvd.

Larry Jandro/Flickr

The 46th Academy Awards were held Tuesday (Tuesday?) April 2, 1974, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion,
a drawing of which you can see behind the Oscar on the billboard. The Sting won Best Picture that year.

Cine Mobile sign on small building.

Notice the billboard says 7:00 p.m. I remember when I grew up in New York State the Oscars would
sometimes start at 10:00 p.m.!

I was trying to find out where on Sunset Blvd. the above photo was taken.
Hollywood Photographs has this photo of Cine Mobile from 1973, saying the
location was at Sunset Blvd. and Sunset Plaza Drive.



The two tower buildings in the distant background of the color photo must be the two towers in Century City.
This area on the south side of Sunset Blvd. has been very much altered since the photo was taken, unlike the
north side where Sunset Plaza Drive connects to Sunset, which is mostly the same. I wonder what the original
intent of the Cine Mobile building was when it was built. It doesn't seem like it'd been built for this company.

"Very much altered" indeed:


gsv; around 8600 Sunset; Sunset Plaza Drive going off to the right.

But the billboard rights were maintained...

A few items regarding the various buildings of the Los Feliz School...

LAT June 19, 1914

The Herald reported on September 8, 1914, that the building had been repaired and had just reopened. The next building replacing it would open a year later:



LAT Oct 31, 1915


LAPL


After the 1915 version was condemned following the LB quake, the LAT announced plans for the current incarnation on Aug 28, 1936....

Chilly day at the beach. ...& more seaweed.

Los Angeles, Calif. [unnamed beach] -no date




The two men wearing seaweed had initials on their rented swimwear. -that's not the case here.

Main Street Gym #1

You can see it here on the 1894 Sanborn Map at 319-21-23 S. Main.


In 1926 the building became home to the Main Street Athletic Club, aka the Main Street Gym.


This photo of the gym is undated, but I'd guess it was from the mid- to late-40s and certainly no later than February 3, 1951:

ProQuest via LAPL



This post-fire photo of the Main Street Gym looks in the opposite direction from the previous photo. The May 21, 1951,
demolition permit for 319-25 S. Main notes that the structure is 30% fire damaged:

On July 27, 1951, as the Turn-Verein Germania Building was being torn down, some workers opened the building's cornerstone
and then the memorabilia-filled iron box inside the cornerstone. I wonder if they found anything unusual in the box . . .

Excellent post FlyingWedge.



I used the date on the cornerstone, Oct. 22, 1893, and found this.

Los Angeles Herald - Oct. 22, 1893





Found in the Los Angeles Herald, Oct. 22, 1893


Sorry, but there's no mention of the items that were placed inside the stone.

More slides have surfaced of the 1969 construction of the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services at 313 N Figueroa Street.

The location was first figured out by Hoss using an earlier slide. Check it out HERE



This first slide (of the new batch) has a great view of the Union Oil Building.



#1

EBAY





A more expansive view looking south/southwest. As you can see, it also includes the Union Oil Building.

#2

EBAY






I'm not exactly sure what we're looking at here.

#3

EBAY






In this final view I believe we are looking east. ...or is it west.


#4

EBAY



A CLOSER LOOK...........East or West?

you figure it out. I've got to make dinner.
