Edison Building (now known as One Bunker Hill) at night, downtown Los Angeles, 1970

Edison Building (now known as One Bunker Hill) at night, downtown Los Angeles, 1970With buildings like these, it’s no wonder the film noir movement found its home in LA. This is the Edison Building in downtown L.A. It was the home the Southern California Edison Company, and was one of the first all-electrically heated and cooled buildings in the western US. Miraculously, it’s still in great condition, but still looks like a great place for a murder most foul.

  1. Murder Most Foul – I am a great Agatha Christie fan. “The Murder of R. Ackroyd” may well be the best mystery ever. Happy Sunday to you & Bob. Love, Lou.

    Well, beings as my favorite movie genre is noir, I do love this shot!

    Here’s another good one (pre-noir) from 1931 but still looks like it’s a ripe location for black’n’white movie crime:
