another view taken sometime in the 30's looking north easterly on calle de los negros towards ferguson alley. this building is really beautiful! according to the sign on the building, just to the left of the gentleman posing, this is the Chinatown location of the YMCA

here's a 1940 image of the same building, apparently now named old los angeles which claims to offer the shortest route to union station....i'm kinda guessin' that the Big "Y" at the far right indicates that this building is still the YMCA
