In the third of my trio of photos showing us the intersection of Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave, this is—actually, I’m not completely sure what it is. A colorized photograph or postcard? Whatever it is, it shows us Wilshire and Western, circa 1920. Two things I’d like to point out: the misspelling of Wilshire as “Wiltshire” at the bottom, and in the center of the intersection is a white pole with what looks like white flags. I assume it’s some sort of traffic signal? Or maybe just something to slow traffic that’s turning from one street to the other. Whatever it is, I’ve never seen one before, so if anyone can solve that mystery, I’d love to hear from you!
