...........Was anyone here aware of this place? ....Wouldn't it be amazing if the building has survived......I wonder where (in Compton) it was located?

May not be the location in your picture e_r but in 1935 the Tom Mix Circus winter quarters was in a Samson Tire plant. - Variety - November 1935

I guess this means an old Samson Tire location in Compton - the company moved to the City Of Commerce in 1928.

The only address I can find for Samson in Compton.

Terebinth is now W. Palmer Street.
