Well, maybe we have a little bit of consolation in the 1931 Selig Retail Store on the nw corner of Western and 3rd. Architect Arthur Harvey
was clearly inspired by Stiles Clements's 1928 Richfield Building. After his 1928 Chateau Elysee (now better known as the Scientology
Celebrity Center), Harvey really got on the Deco bandwagon--two other of his L.A. works are the American Storage building and the Wilshire
Professional Building. Imagine if they, too, had been done in black and gold:

American Storage Company building, 3636 Beverly Blvd

Wilshire Professional Building, 3825 Wilshire
