This photograph is from from 1924 but the building hadn’t changed much when California Drop Cloth took over the second floor in the Fall of 1978. We may have been the last tenants of the building which was torn down in 1985 to make way for the Los Angeles convention center expansion. This is what the same corner looks like today.
