I've noticed that a lot with the "then and now" building photos as well.
They always look bigger then than now when shot from the same or similar locations.
It's it the camera lenses? In this case maybe it's the different elevations from which they were shot. Still....

BTW Did anybody notice the Heinz 57 in the round hill? (I know you did)
It's identical to the Baldwin Hills "57" that was perched above La Cienega.
They were made from poured concrete I believe.
