The 1940 CD has a Farmers Public General Market at 6151 W Pico, and also a Ralph's at 6121, so we're looking east on Pico. At least the decorative treatment of the roof line has survived, if you squint hard enough.


Ralphs at 6125 W. Pico was evidently built in '31 and demolished in '66. Assume it started as "open air" and ended "climate controlled.".

Circa '45

Free parking.

Assume it started as "open air" and ended "climate controlled." Second floor appears to be decorative and non functional. Wonder if any similar examples of this type of "Ralphs" architecture escaped modernization.

We have previously explored this area. (There was a series of images, some of which were from a rooftop perspective.)


Unimproved area at Pico and La Cienega included links known as the Pico Fairway.

Looking NE toward Carthay theater.


"Hokum Plumbing" 4709 W. Pico; 860 N. Highland (later at 400 N. Beverly Dr., BH) Related to John Hokum, Plumber at 106 E 9th St., per the 1904 CD?
