Here's another 'mystery' location.

"1925 Los Angeles California Harley Davidson Motorcycle, Banner Dairy Old Photo"


http://www.ebay.com/itm/1925-LOS-ANG...3D391378229900


What's especially intriguing about the photographs is the small building in the background that looks like it might be a depot.

I started to look in the directories under "Banner" but there were soooo many.....Banner Ave....even a Banner Theater.

Of course, just because the seller says it's Los Angeles, it might not be. It could be elsewhere in So. California. It's a fun little mystery none-the-less.

(I believe this is the same seller that had the R.J. Rood snapshots)

I searched a host of Brown Derby posts, fwiw, but didn't see this one.

It's unusual in that it's of the Wilshire location, but is taken from the opposite side, the coffee shop annex, where you don't see the "derby" shaped hat.
The Chapman Park Hotel sign is visible across the street next to what make of automobile?

Flickr

For comparison, here's another photo taken from the opposite direction.
Both photos were just marked c. 1950's.

What is that large box-like thing for on the roof?
Love the lady's colorful coat and the man hosing off the street.
(Oh, the good old days when people had water for such things!)

Talking I know another option

I agree, I'm a constant traveler, last year I went to LAX to visit a friend and he recommended me Shuttle Wizard, I been using their service for almost 2 years, and, to be honest, they are always in time, and let me go with my travel partner, Draco, a beautiful and huge husky hahah.

I'm pleased with their rates and service, not sure of how much will be for your asking but I always check it before I call them in their page https://shuttlewizard.com/

The drivers are friendly and always recommend me places to visit in the city, I guess its cus they are always through the city, which is nice. I hope I´ve helped you, nice trip

Looks like a cooling tower.
