Figueroa Street intersects at it center. There is a lot of traffic on the left side of the boulevard, while very few cars can be seen on the right. Several large buildings line Wilshire: Dinsmore Apartments can be seen in the background at center and right, while in the middle at left is Paul G. Hoffman Studebaker dealership. La Salle University is on the corner of Wilshire and Figueroa.
Legible signs include, from left to right: "Alka Seltzer", "Studebaker Service", "The Dinsmore Apartments", "Associated", "Inside Parking 15¢", "Garage", and "10".
