It took me a bit to get my bearings, until it dawned on me that the construction in the distance (on the left) is for the Unocal Headquarters which was built in 1957.
But I want to direct your eye to the large building with the row of arched windows in the upper left hand corner.

I assumed the building was gone.....



....and replaced by this nondescript glass box.

-looking south from S. Beaudry Ave.




But after looking at it from several angles, I think there's a possibility that the old building might be beneath all that glass.


below: Here's a vintage aerial view showing the building in question.

This contemporary aerial shows that the 'new' building has the same basic L shape.

-and I think from this angle you can see both the old and the new.

What do you guys think? Am I on the right track?

(I'm going to be extremely embarrassed if we've already discussed this on NLA)

One last thing:

Here's almost the same exact view as the postcard at the beginning of my post,
..except it's night (obviously ), and the construction of the Unocal Headquarters is finished.
