The building at 600 S. Coronado also occupied the former site of 606 and stood from 1910-59. Below at upper left is 600 S. Coronado
on the 1950 Sanborn, on the SE corner of 6th Street:

Here's a fuzzy 1925 aerial with 600 S. Coronado at upper left:

These next two photos are undated but I'd guess c. 1940. Here, 600 S. Coronado is below the dog and cat food ad:

This is the closest view of 600 S. Coronado I could find:

FASCINATING old building, Flyingwedge. Very much in the style of the Mission Apartments. Thank you! Any idea of the building's name?
