ANSWER: The impressive structure in the photo is the Mary Andrews Clark Memorial, a residence for working girls at 306 Loma Drive, at the corner of W 3rd St. Remember? It was built as a "living memorial" to his mother by Sen. Clark, the Montana "copper king."
Declared Historic-Cultural Monument #158 by the City of Los Angeles in 1976.
