Spooky looking place

Photograph of the Sisters Orphan Home (Los Angeles Orphanage), Boyle Heights, Seventh Street and Boyle Avenue, cornerstone laid 9 February 1890. The 4-story Romanesque stone building is surrounded by fields in which grow trees, grass and other plants. A tall bell tower with a stone cross on top towers over the main entry. A set of broad stairs supply an additional entry at left. A woman(?) is standing near the dirt road which passes in front of the building. "Please credit Title Insurance and Trust Company (Los Angeles), Collection of Historical Photographs" -- stamped on verso.

ca. 1900
