The building on the left (443 South Los Angeles Street) was the Los Angeles Mission from 1949 until January 1992. There's a short history here. LAPL has this 1959 picture.

It looks like the windows were still full-size in the image above, but they have their current appearance in the undated picture below.

Isn't "COFFEE ROASTED" more likely? I had a quick look through a few of the CDs, but didn't find any coffee roasting businesses at that address, although it could easily have been advertising a business at another location.
