Thanks to my fellow collaborators for nailing the Orlando Avenue location. This one was a real joint effort. ProphetM, I'm kicking myself for not checking the reverse angle on the aerial view to find those hidden roof details, but I'll get over it . Great work by everyone involved.

Have we seen the Moorcliff Apartments before? I don't recall.

The 4 story building in the center of the photo is the Moore Cliff Apartments.

Can anyone tell me what the sign in the middle of Hill Street is? It looks as if lanterns are hanging on each side of the sign.
Perhaps it's nothing more than "Open Manhole".

Also notice the man on crutches getting ready to board the approaching streetcar.

below: Here is another photo of the Moore Cliff from LAPL.

Here's a close-up from the top picture. BTW. the sign in the middle of Hill Street just says "Danger Excavation".
