I don't remember seeing this 1929 aerial before. The main street is Wilshire and the staggered intersection is S Wilton Place.

At the lower left of this close-up is the extant 4016 Wilshire, just mentioned by GW. That should mean that the houses above are 4032 and 4036 Wilshire.

Another 1929 aerial taken just east of the one above shows the intersection of Wilshire and Western.

On the site where the Wiltern/Pellissier Building will be built a year or later is The Henry de Roulet Co., selling property in Pellissier Square (see GW's recent post).

On the northwest corner are the offices of another realtor, Kells & Grant. This shot is from 1927. Notice the real car on display in the box to the left.

Going back to the aerial shot, I was also intrigued by the two aircraft which are parked on the corner of Western and Ingraham. I was hoping that one of them might have made it to Bob's Air Mail Service Station at 5453 Wilshire (see BifRayRock's post #7493), but their designs look wrong.
