A stagecoach arrives at the Melrose Hotel and Hotel Richelieu on Grand Avenue near Second Street, downtown Los AngelesIt’s amazing (at least, to me) that Los Angeles ever looked like this. Here we see a stagecoach—not a Hollywood studio version of a stagecoach, but an actual one—arriving at the Melrose Hotel and Hotel Richelieu on Grand Avenue near Second Street in downtown L.A., close to where the Disney concert hall now stands. It’s impossible to know if this photo was staged or not, but the locals seem pretty excited about coach’s arrival.

Here is a clearer shot of the Melrose and Richelieu Hotels:
