Probably all know that the tall bldg. in center of photo is the Los Angeles Railway building (1060 S Broadway) I hired out here in early 60’s for the old MTA. Started in the mail room, moved to accounting dept (sorting interline tickets) and wound up in the print shop before moving out to West Hollywood Div 7 as an operator. I was even qualified as an elevator operator as in those days you needed a permit. Those were the good old times, but was too dumb to realize it.
