Residential stretch of Orange Street (later Wilshire Boulevard) at Lucas Avenue, Los Angeles, circa 1892

This circa 1892 photo shows us a residential stretch of Seventh Street at Lucas Avenue, not far from downtown Los Angeles. It’s a block south of what was once called Orange Street before Henry Gaylord Wilshire started developing it into Wilshire Blvd in the late 1890s. In the background, we can also see one of those 150-foot electric light “Moon Towers” featured in yesterday’s photo.
