Bellevue Terrace Hotel at Figueroa & 6th, downtown Los Angeles, circa 1890What a sight turn-of-the-century Los Angeles must have been with buildings like these. Back then, “Los Angeles” was largely what we now think of as “downtown L.A.” – no urban sprawl from here to Tijuana! – but it was dotted with eye-candy buildings like this. It was the Bellevue Terrace Hotel at Figueroa & 6th, circa 1890. It’s no longer there but at least it was replaced with a something lovely—the classic Jonathan Club building, erected in 1925 and designed by Schultze and Weaver, the same firm who dreamed up the Biltmore Hotel overlooking Pershing Square.
