Any one else aware of this one? I'm sure someone is.
I don't remember seeing that gasometer before, but it looks like it was between Main Street and Hampton Drive. The aerial shot below is from 1952; it's gone by 1972.

At the middle of that lot today you'll find Google Los Angeles. The gasometer would have been just off the right of this picture.
