Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
S. Spaulding Avenue no longer meets Olympic Boulevard as seen here; where the streets used to interesect is an entrance for a parking lot for a multi-story office building at 5901 Olympic Boulevard.
Looking east down Olympic Boulevard from just west of where it crosses S. Spaulding Avenue (left). Seen are a glimpse of a Texaco station, apartment buildings, including the one with stairs (left) at 947-953 Alandele Avenue, and various signs and businesses. The Richfield billboard (center) reads, "Irene Dunne Says Go Places with Richfield, Gasoline of the Stars."
