Description
ANSWER: With all those corny clues, you surely were able to guess that the structure shown in the photo is Wrigley Field on E 42nd Place at Avalon Blvd., home of the Los Angeles Angels baseball club.
Los Angeles' Wrigley Field was built by William Wrigley Jr. in the 1920s. The structure was demolished in 1966.
KNOW YOUR CITY, NO.131 -- Just because a lot of hits have been made here, you might think it is a movie studio. But it isn't, by gum. And even if cherubs do cavort here, it isn't heaven, either. No labor trouble, but plenty of strikes. See Page 28, Part ll.
