I believe this is the north side (rear view) of the iconic May Co. on Wilshire Blvd.

I've been looking for a picture of that hedge which would also have included the Gas Station we tried to find earlier in this thread. Here's a nice Ed Ruscha shot which shows the station. I'm convinced the hedge is there on 6th just east of the Gas Station.

If you like aerials of L.A., this is a great site:

Then I found this shot of Wilshire/Fairfax and in the background right, you can see the vertical May Co. sign. Was this a gas station or was it the May Co. Automotive Department?

Here's BifRayRock's post from before:

*Look closely and you can see the image of that station near the May Co. "M" in this photo (3:30 O'clock, far right hand side.) The picture indicates the presence of a spire - that I do not remember.

I also stumbled across this incredible site. Look towards the bottom for links to hundreds of pictures:
