Great post on the Stowell. I will forever call it the Stowell, since Nathan Stowell is important, dammit. (We basically "owe" him Los Angeles since he was the one who figured out how to irrigate the thing.) They recently painted over the Stowell ghost sign...

But let's not forget it was called The Earle from 1950-55 when owned by the Milner chain. Noirish snap from my collection:
