Thanks to GW and Tourmaline for the follow-ups on 1500 Wilshire Bouelvard.


We've seen the subject of this Julius Shulman photoset before. It's referred to here as the Lucien Lelong Building, but you can see its earlier incarnation as Chesterfield's Furniture Company courtesy of Godzilla and BifRayRock in post #19190. This is "Job 11: Spaulding and Rex, Lucien Lelong Building (Los Angeles, Calif.),1947".

Looking north across Wilshire, there's a glimpse of Switzer's on the left.

On the other side of New Hampshire is the tiled Texaco station which we've also seen before. On the right are the Town House and Bullocks.

The final shot shows the Gaylord just along Wilshire and the Wiltern in the distance.

All from Getty Research Institute

By coincidence, I found that the demo permit is dated exactly 45 years ago today. The Mirae Bank now occupies the northwest corner of Wilshire and New Hampshire.
