This stretch of Wilshire truly was impressive (to me). Reminiscent of Orange Grove Blvd. in Pasadena (e.g., Wrigley Mansion without a gland transplant)

In no particular order. (West to East: S. New Hampshire > Vermont > Shatto > Westmoreland > Wilshire Place > Virgil)

1. Wilshire Place and Wilshire




3. "Wilshire east from Vermont."


4. Shatto and Wilshire

5. The Hancock mansion adjoined by the World Famous Gland Specialist's abode (Vermont and Wilshire)

USC Digital






8. Wilshire and Westmoreland (Pre Bullocks Wilshire?)


9. Signs indicate Virgil and Wilshire


10. North side of Wilshire, between Virgil and Wilshire Place.

Dana Point Sales Office

ALL (chopped up or otherwise) from USC Digital
