so-cal-bear has single-handedly discovered John Lautner's inspiration for his Chemosphere House at 7776 Torreyson Drive.

In all seriousness, I believe the unique (rounded) building in the 1890s photograph originally housed a 'cyclorama'.

In later years it became the Panorama Skating Rink....located within the Panorama Building (see below).
