Olvera Street

Ok, I think that's the Marie Hammel Building (Hudson & Munsel, 1909) and Italian Hall (Julius Kraus, 1907). This bit of Olvera St was also used in "The Kid" reunion scene as detailed here. Map of Olvera Street.

Here's the confirming quote:

"As I explain in my book Silent Traces, Chaplin was already familiar with Olvera Street, as he previously filmed chase scenes from Easy Street (1917) along the same spot."

-John Bengtson in silent locations

And plate No. 5 of the 1914 Baist map (sort of) identifying the building at the end of Olvera St (across Macy) in the screen grab:
