Here's an amazing original photograph of the. . .

Shepherd-Campbell Co. Service Station, 2500 Figueroa Avenue, Los Angeles.

An arch this wide must be full of rebar - otherwise it would crumble in the slightest earthquake.




This image differs from the other photographs we have seen of this station. You can view them Here

This one is a mystery location.


The same eBay seller also has this original photograph of a much more modest gas station.

Luckily, there are some clues. Here are two of them

A sign for cinema equipment (and a tailor) on the left....And the street number #102 on the right.

Good luck minions!

One more mystery location for today.



Los Angeles Street, 4x5 Photo Negative from 1970 #210222l



eBay (no longer listed)









There is one worthless slight clue. . .

a sign on the building.


detail

but it's very blurry.





I don't believe the seller means "Los Angeles Street", per se, because all their negatives of Los Angeles say Los Angeles Street, 4x5 Photo Negative 1970 and then a number code.

You can see some of them Here
