449 at Macy and Alameda

Los Angeles Railway car no. 449 pauses for this amazing photo in front of the Kerckhoff-Cuzner Mill & Lumber Company, located at Macy and Alameda Streets in Los Angeles, on June 13, 1937. Check out the terrific US 101 and US 99 shields.

William G. Kerckhoff was a UCLA benefactor who bequeathed money upon his death to build Kerckhoff Hall, one of the more famed buildings on the UCLA campus. Learn more here and here.

    Hello,
    My husband’s great grandfather and his partner owned the lumber company photographed here. This is such a wonderful photo. Thank you for posting this!

    Would this building have been removed to make way for Union Station?
    The new Ganahl Lumber yard in Pasadena has a photo of their original facility north of what is now Old Pasadena–in the distance is the PE Pasadena carbarn, apparently still under construction at the time.
