Description
John and Donald Parkinson designed the 1929 Bullock's Wilshire, located at 3050 Wilshire Boulevard, which was designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #56 in 1968. The porte cochere, or motor court, is the main entrance to the store. The Southwestern Law School acquired the building in the mid-1990s.
