    The compression of view is always tricky. The “MTA Coach” and “Santa Fe” signs would give away the corner of Sixth & Main. Coles and the arch windows betray the building on left as the PE terminal-cum-station which sat below Main and above Los Angeles (altered over time?). This Greyhound terminal is visible over and beyond the elevated trackage. The Chevron would be about or just below the general area close to where the surface yard originally ran across coming off of 7th, with the elevated then being built over it later. I wonder what that “Golden State” sign (left) is about? Hotel, theatre, etc.? Falcons and Valiants really set the tone for this period. There is an additional photo of this location to compare this to. Watch for the hidden traffic cop.
