Description
Many of the buildings shown here have since been demolished.
Awnings cover the entrances to the retail shops on a busy street in downtown Los Angeles. Cars are parked along the curb and a streetcar waits at the intersection as pedestrians cross. On the corner is Belmont Grill, advertising French dipped sandwiches and 4% Eastside Beer on tap. Hotels, office buildings, dental offices and drug stores extend down the street.
