Northwest corner of Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave, Los Angeles, 1927

Northwest corner of Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave, Los Angeles, 1927Yesterday, I posted a photo of the corner of Wilshire and Western in 1939. This photo is from 12 years earlier when—at least not as far as I can see in this photo—that intersection didn’t even have traffic lights. Good luck to those drivers on Western trying to cross Wilshire. I also want to draw you attention to the window display near the center of the photo. It looks like an actual car (some sort of roadster?) on display in a picture box window. What I want to know is how they got it in there!

    The partly obscured bank sign on the right side of the 1927 picture appears to be a Bank of Italy sign. In 1928 Bank of Italy would change its name to Bank of America.
