I just came across this large 47" x 8" panorama on Ebay



Ebay

................................................................................LOS ANGELES CA CALIFORNIA BPOE ELKS CLUB 1915 PANORAMA PHOTOGRAPH 47" x 8" .............................................................................................

If you look closely, it says the men are standing in front of the 'Grand Lodge'. [see below]

The B.P.O.E. Building that I am aware of (from this same time period), was at the top of Angels Flight (3rd and Olive).





Luckily, the Ebay seller included four close-ups.


#1 Grand Lodge

detail







#2 Left Side.










#3 Directly Ahead / Center










#4 Looking down the street, on the right.



Where are they?

UPDATE:

I didn't see this part of the description.

panoramic photo featuring the Elks Club of Los Angeles, California in 1915. The photo was found rolled-up in our attic in Wisconsin. Aside from the Elks Club several businesses and points of interest can be seen, including "Hotel Imperial", "Virgil" (Store), Trolley (East Lake Park and North Main Street destination placards), "The Great Western Steam Cleaning Works", "Stapleton Furniture Company", "Stillwell Hotel", and the "Mozart Theatre".
