I've 'googled' here and there with no results.

Nice find! I recently did some searching on that building, which was at 3301 Wilshire Boulevard, at the northwest corner with Berendo Street. Sometimes also called the Post Building, it was finished in 1927 and demolished around 1970 to make way for the Wilshire Plaza office tower.

I got as far as making a then and now image but I haven't published it to my blog since I lost the reference for the original image. I believe it's from one of the CSU libraries but I've never been able to find it again...if anybody has any leads I would be delighted to know!
