Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2031
Significance: The May Company Department Store on Wilhsire openly indicates how the building's location at the busy corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Fairfax Ave. is to be exploited as a sign - in this case as gold mosaic-covered corner portion which suggests an expensive bottle of perfume. The real entrance to the building is to the north off of the extensive ground level parking lot.
