I believe the circled building is the home of the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart.

I was so hoping that the modern-day aerial would reveal a hidden Victorian survivor.

I found this aerial that predates the other two aerial I posted of Queen of Angels.

late 1930s

http://hollywoodphotographs.com/

I wonder if all those little bungalows just west of the main building belonged to the Franciscan Sisters.




below: I thought this was the Victorian that appears in the aerials, but after I compared them I'm not so sure they match up.

Broadway Palace Market

ebay



The Schaber's Cafeteria building currently stands at 622 S. Broadway. I'm sure the postcard predates this wonderful building.

Does anyone have a photograph of the building that stood at 618-622 S. Broadway before Schaber's was built in 1928?

The elaborate grillwork on the facade appears in the interior arches as well. This must have been a stunning place!

Here's an update on the interior.

That's correct. He was his Chef and put together the original menu for the place. Not sure when he left though.

Not really noirish, but cool anyway. Bert had a lot of friends and in 1938 they decided to show him how much. It's solid copper with silver plate. Weights 19 lbs. I've been told the names engraved are mostly LA business men and local politicians who favored the Paris Inn and Lucca's. If anybody would like a list of the names, email me your request at rdrovere@hotmail.com. Be glad to share it.

Thank-you Hoss, I'm working on it.

This is the best I've found so far. It shows Desmond's department store in 1925 with the predecessor to Schaber's on the right.


California State Library

LAPL date this picture as 1935, but it's obviously much earlier. On the left you can clearly see "622" and most of the word "MARKET" (I'm assuming it's the end of Broadway Palace Market). It's a shame the picture isn't a little wider.

Bert's place Lucca on 5th and Western. Bert's nephew Lawrence ( my dad ) was the general manager from 1945 until it closed in 1955. How sad a fast food place sits where it used too.

Palmer Conner slides at Huntington Digital Library

The rest of the 500 plus images should be up late tonight; will take a couple hours to upload them all. Then supervisor still has to approve the records but should available for viewing this weekend.

HossC, thanks for finding the photos of pre-Schaber's 618-622 S. Broadway.


-so glad the old (1911) Orpheum building is still with us. (notice that one of the bronze sconces is missing in the B/W photo above)

http://www.usapics.net/palace-theater-los-angeles.html





interior: Orpheum (later Palace) Theater.

http://theatrehistoricalsociety.file...-5-24-left.jpg

I've never seen side balconies arranged quite like that. It's almost like they were tacked on.



The beauty shop seems to be getting top billing in this 1945 photo.

note the Newsreels blade sign at right.

Very cool discovery FlyingWedge. What do you think the thing on top represented? A stylized water-heater?

I could look down on the wires for the street cars which would spark sometimes when a street car passed. In the basement was a Ballroom Dance business, I would peep in on them from time to time. Next door was a Pool Hall where I would go and buy a candy bar, nobody ever bothered me there. The elevator was manually operated and they had a man doing that during meetings or you took the stairs. Some of the lodge meeting rooms were plain but the Commandry Room was large with a pipe organ and stage. Sometimes they had entertainment other times it was lodge business. Their were rooms for large dinners which I still can remember, even faces of people that I knew. All Gone Now...
Fantastic memories Hollywood Graham. You actually transported me back in time for a few minutes.
I'm so glad you decided to share this with us.
