Haverfield Drugs at Sunset and Laurel Canyon Blvds, Los Angeles, 1928I enjoy seeing a photo of Schwab’s Pharmacy as much as anyone, but I wish sometimes the person with the camera had turned around and photographed this gorgeous building as well. It’s Haverfield Drugs at the corner of Sunset and Laurel Canyon Blvd, in 1928, a year after the Garden of Allah opened. It later became a Glorifried Ham’n’Eggs (“From pan to mouth”). Remarkably, the building is still there (albeit a stripped-down version) and is now a UPS Store.

And how it looks today. (Not quite the same ring to it, huh?)

  1. AGAIN ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL BUILDING BEING ABUSE BY WHAT IS CALLED PROGRESS….IT’S HARD FOR ME TO BELIEVE PEOPLE ARE SO COLD AND IGNORANT TO DEFACE THESE LAND MARK BUILDINGS TO ME IT’S INSANITY. CHEERS, DENIEL EDWARDS.

    2016 version looks tacky, that’s for sure. Like the palm trees though.

    Thanks, Martin, for sharing.
