We’re looking west along Wilshire Blvd from New Hampshire Ave in 1932. That faux Tudor house (Cole House, 3240 Wilshire) on the left gives us an idea of the sorts of homes that once lined Wilshire. I also love the tiled domed Texaco roof, and that little two-person jalopy shooting through the intersection. Although the intersection looks nothing like this anymore, the 12-story building behind the Tudor home and the spire behind it are still around, so that’s something.
The same intersection in 2016:
