The bigorangelandmarks link has a small picture that's similar to the one below, but it doesn't show the original roof signs. USC dates this picture as 1932.

Well, just south of Young's Market on Union Ave. is the old Charleston Hotel & Apts.

The USC picture above shows that the Charleston Hotel used to be the Hotel Strand.

e_r's full post includes more pictures of Young's Market, the Charleston Hotel and several other buildings in the area:


The 1932 date for the Young's Market picture is confirmed by another picture in the same set. This view of the Boos Bros. Cafeteria at 530 South Hill comes complete with Olympic flags.
