I'm quite impressed by the exotic buildings in this early photograph.

Notice the building at middle-left with the tall turrets (the turrets are somewhat hard to see).
Also intriguing is the building at lower-right with the prominent skylight and tower.

Regrettably, I am unable to identify any of these early Hollywood buildings.
The turreted building at middle-left is the Hollywood Hotel. Gone, of course. But I was amazed to find that 107 years later, at least one of the buildings in your picture still exists, and is in use (and even iconized) by the American Society of Cinematographers. Many more historic pics at link below.
