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




The hospital closed in the 1980s. -today the building is home to The Dream Center http://www.dreamcenter.org/

Somebody, somewhere, must know somebody who heard of someone who may know the roof colors. :)

Who knows if the tinting is correct?

Darn newbies! Pictures are much easier to post on ebay and f/b! Sorry they're not exactly correct.

The shop, with it's curved features, looks like it's on a corner, but 3732 places it mid way between Western Ave. and Hobart Blvd.

The overpass today. The building on the right appears to be the same, even though the windows have been heavily modified.

This makes me wonder where the mirror-mural ended up after the Paris Inn closed.
It's probably in someone's attic or basement.

I think it says 'Innocente Pedroli' who evidently was a co-owner for a time.
