Here is the photograph that was turned vertically in last night's post.







I don't believe we will ever know the location. There are simply not enough clues.











A larger view of the fine looking residential street. I think might be West 5th Street. (also from last night's post)






I've been trying to figure out what that is along the curb.



This

detail






Could it be something left behind by the guy in the wagon?

Good eye Palmero
These old buildings have one problem....they smell horrible inside.

We are the Champions of THE WORLD. But Turner might get in trouble for rejoining the celebration and taking off his mask after testing +. But the Lakers and Dodgers have brought some joy to our city in this plague year. Will the Rams be next?

Trivia--Has any city won the basketball, baseball and football crown in the same year?

Opinion--Koufax at his best (1962-1966) might have been the most dominant and overpowering pitcher ever, although Gibson, Walter Johnson, Mathewson, Feller & several others were pretty dang good too. But Koufax was consistently good and overpowered batters with strikeouts in his best years. He was the best pitcher I ever saw. This new pitcher Bueller looks promising. Happy that Kershaw finally got his ring after several missed chances.

Even if you throw in hockey, no city or major metropolitan area has won any three in a calendar year. If you broadened the qualification to winning three within a year's time, I can't think of any then either.
The Rams can change that though!

Not much more than a slightly educated guess and the fact that one of the other photos was from the same general area, that looks like it could be Bunker Hill Avenue.

Edit: Probably not. I looked at some photos of Bunker Hill Ave and there the sidewalk ends right at the curb, no green strip separating the sidewalk and street. It was the general look of the buildings and short setbacks that originally had me thinking that way.

I was poking around in the Googlemobile, checking out the environs of the (interestingly fragmentary) W. 5th St., when I ran across this interesting survival at 403 S. Bonnie Brae St., currently the Grier-Musser Museum, which didn't come up for me on an NLA search:

I am so sorry to see all the negative attention on Justin Turner, even if one thinks it's warranted. Besides this, he is such a fine human being. He's a part of the city and does charity work all the time on behalf of various segments of the community. He was a nominee this year for MLB's Roberto Clemente Award, an annual recognition of the MLB player "who best represents the game through extraordinary character, community involvement, philanthropy and positive contributions, both on and off the field."

In the world we live in now you can be suddenly erased for ONE thing, despite anything else. You know the old saying about walking a mile in someone else's shoes. You've worked your whole life for something and not only is it at hand, but it happens and then...you're not supposed to have any part of it? And everyone else who has no idea about any of that judges you. Because you're not perfect? As a fan I know the feeling from afar of wanting the elusive prize...going on ten years in a row getting to the play-offs, the end stretch, and each year one step forward, two steps back, victories snatched in the last innings and one possibly snatched by a cheating scandal. And I'm a fan, not a player doing all the work. I have to give Justin Turner a pass because I cannot say that I wouldn't have done the same thing.

The eBay description is "... a newsstand in Los Angeles / possibly Hollywood." It looks like name of the store is written "National Drug Co." In the 1930 city directory, under Druggists-Retail, the closest thing is National Cut Price Drug Stores Inc 223 S Main, which is now a parking lot across from St. Vibiana's.

UPDATE


It looks like the National Drug Company appears in the Our Gang short A Lad An' A Lamp: https://ourgang.fandom.com/wiki/National_Drug_Company for about 1 second at 16:35. Do you think that object on the left side of the uncropped photo is a filming light? Is that a boom microphone at the top center, and its shadow at the bottom?
