  1. Cool pic. The trees on the left are the northern edge of Pershing Square (still “Central Park” in 1910). On the right are the California Club, the Auditorium, and the Auditorium Hotel. In the next block, with the truncated pyrmaid on its roof, is the Grand Haven building . The building with the towers at the end of the street is the State Normal School, on ‘Normal Hill.’

    For a picture-postcard tour of the area, see Brent C. Dickerson’s A Tour of Old Los Angeles, Ch. 13: Grand Avenue, the State Normal School, and Bunker Hill Avenue.
