Created/Published
Documentation compiled after 1933.

Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2023
Significance: A serene, streamlined box as a machine for merchandising. Glass blocks are here exploited for their greatest functional and decorative possibilities. As with many Wilshire Blvd. buildings of its type, the rear entrance provides parking lot access and is more important visually and functionally than the conventionally primary street entrance.
