Then and Now – Same Location in LA from 1948 and Today
Here is the same location, 67 years apart. This is the triangular corner of Downtown where S.Spring and S. Main meet 9th Street in Los Angeles. Notice the old street lamp on the left (above the Fedex truck) is also in the 1948 photo! That same street lamp and fixture survives to this day. The 1948 shot is an archive photo found all over the web. I located what it looks like today from Google Street View. The building in the center and the large one on the left are the same in both photos.
