We're looking across the ball park so, according to the 1910 Baist map, the buildings are St. Vincent College and the Church of St. Vincent De Paul at Grand and Washington.

Loyola High School of Los Angeles is the region's oldest educational institution, pre-dating the University of California system and the Los Angeles public schools. The school was founded in 1865 as St. Vincent's College at the behest of Archdiocese of Los Angeles Bishop Thaddeus Amat, a member of the Vincentian order. In 1919, the Vincentians agreed to transfer management of the school to the Jesuits. After several transitions, the school moved in 1927 to its current location on Venice Boulevard. Irish philanthropist Thomas P. Higgins provided the land for the school. - Wikipedia
Here's St. Vincent's College, circa 1908.


Add a little color.


I'll finish with a picture of some priests on the steps of St. Vincent's College in 1911. The caption says "More than fifty priests are shown, along with a man at foreground center that appears to be a bishop."
