Description
Looking southeast across Wilshire Boulevard, showing the Art Deco Wilshire Tower on Miracle Mile. A large sign on top of the store displays "Silverwoods, Hart Schaffner & Marx, clothes". The corner of the building is curved and has a large expanse of glass that covers two stories. The sign on the glass states "Silverwoods expand", "advance style shop of the West", "Hart Schaffner & Marx clothes for men & boys", "opening in the autumn". The bottom of the sign shows a medieval scene with the knights dressed in contemporary fabrics. Across the street is an empty lot.
