Curbed – Cornerspotter: Hint: Where Was This Fancy Facade in the Late 1930s?

October 31st, 2014

Welcome to Cornerspotter, a weekly Curbed game in which you try to identify the location and/or identity of a particular building or streetscape in a historic photograph. Impress us and your fellow Curbed readers with your uncanny insight into Los Angeles and its past!

The wonderful details on the front of this historic building are thankfully still sitting on this corner for all passersby to admire. The photo, taken around 1937, would have captured the building when it was about a decade old. Just a baby! As if it needed to be stated about a building that looks like this, it is, in fact, a celebrity magnet. (That’s equally true of this mystery place’s “sister” structure.) Think you know what this dashing old complex is, and where it can be found? Tell us in the comments!

Curbed – Mural Support: DTLA’s Highest-Profile Mural Getting Much-Needed Restoration

October 30th, 2014

One of Downtown’s most recognizable murals is all set to get some overdue renovations. Called “The Pope of Broadway,” the Eloy Torres painting on the Victor Clothing Company building at Second and Broadway depicts prolific actor Anthony Quinn, and it’s seen better days. Thankfully, says the LA Times, $ 150,000-worth of restoration is on the way thanks to a donation from Greenland USA, the developer of South Park’s massive Metropolis megaproject.

Torres painted the 70-foot-tall mural in 1985, but over the years it’s become faded and has also been vandalized, says the Downtown News. The restoration work is being spearheaded by the LA Mural Conservancy, which also worked on the 1984 Olympics murals.
