Panoramic view of downtown Los Angeles from Bunker Hill, circa 1894

Panoramic view of downtown Los Angeles from Bunker Hill, circa 1894It’s hard to imagine that Los Angeles was ever a sleepy little burg like the one shown here in this circa 1894 panorama taken from Bunker Hill. The Bradbury building stands middle-right at the corner of Third and Broadway and is probably the only structure visible in this photo that’s still around.

    What a beautiful portrait of old Los Angeles. Sad to think these buildings save one are most likely gone.

    Read this particular shot was taken from the rear deck of the Crocker Mansion which you can see a little of this deck on the bottom of the photo. City Hall to the left and the First Congregation Church to the lower left.

    Here’s the Crocker Mansion and info:

    Thanks, Martin.
