As I said yesterday, I've run out of Julius Shulman Bank of America photosets, but here's one of Gibraltar Savings. This branch was at 3701 S La Brea Avenue, not far from the Rodeo Road/La Cienega intersection we discussed recently. It's "Job 3588: William L. Pereira and Associates, Gibraltar Savings (Los Angeles, Calif.), 1963".



By chance, it's another building with an exposed steel frame, although this one is smaller than either of the BoA branches we looked at. This view looks along the front.



A large central skylight gave great interior illumination.



Like many of the later Julius Shulman photosets, there's also a shot with the lights on.



All from Getty Research Institute

Today there's a T-Mobile store on the site. Historic Aerials shows a building with a square structure in the center of the roof up until 1989.
