An auto race from 1927. The caption on the back says "Hitting a rattling good pace through Los Angeles with the Oldsmobile, a Reo and a 1904 Ford matching snorts for the lead." The sign in the center is for Milnor Inc, importers of European and Oriental goods at 3555 Wilshire Boulevard.


Here's a current view along Wilshire from South Kingsley Drive. The Wilshire Christian Church is still there, although nearly hidden, and the Gaylord can be seen in the distance. I think the building on the right of the picture above is probably the Talmadge.
