Hello,

After reading the blog entry about the uncovering of the Echo's arches and seeing those great historical photographs, I was wondering if anyone could help me find images of some very specific locations.

I need:


  • The intersection of Temple and Glendale, looking SOUTH, BEFORE 1930. I need to see the building at 1542 Temple, now a storage lot for Prestige Auto Body.
  • The intersection of Sunset and McDuff, looking NORTH, BEFORE 1950. I need to see 1306 McDuff, now the parking lot of A1 Warehouse Market.
  • Temple Street, between Patton and Douglas, looking NORTH, BEFORE 1940. I need to see 1413 Temple, which is next to that huge new condo that was recently built, across the street from the EP library.

In all cases, I have photographs that are either looking the wrong way or taken at the wrong time period. I'd be interested in any photo that even partially shows those addresses, from any angle. For example, I know many of you lived around Laveta Terrace, and you might have an old family photo that shows the area down towards Sunset as well.

I've looked in all the usual places (archives, lapl, ucla, etc.). But since I don't remember seeing those shots of the Echo before, I obviously haven't seen everything from this era in my searches. If anyone has seen any of these images (or knows of new places I could look) I would appreciate the help!

I know this is a long shot, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Are you still looking for photos of some very specific locations? I am a graphite pencil artist and can draw the preferred scene, using your other photos. I'll change the viewpoint and time period to your request. If you are interested in a custom piece of art please contact me. You can see samples of my work if you'll "Google Me".
