I pinpointed the location for you. (I'm 99.9% sure this is correct)

re: The tanks

Unless I am mistaken, these two tanks are too far south to be the L.A. Gas tanks up by the old 102 Brewery.

The nearer one is definitely a gas-o-meter.



but I am confused by tank number 2) in the distance.... Is this a gas-o-meter as well? I ask because I don't see the lattice frame work.



Have we seen these two, particular, tanks before? . . .or have I just forgotten about them.

The taller buildings in the background still stand.
