I've always wondered what those cylindrical shaped buildings are in the first pic of the thread. I've seen them before in old pictures and videos but I've never figured out what they are... anybody know?

Hello guys, I'm a newbie here, congratulations for the amazing photos!
I am helping a very good friend of mine, WRomanus, in his deep research on Antonioni's Zabriskie Point (1970) film, which was located in Los Angeles.
Does anyone recognise this place in LA (circa 1968)?

One of the most interesting threads I ever seen in SSC buddy. I love this kind of old times pictures! Brazilian Forum has a thread of the same style about my birth place, Belo Horizonte, and Australian Forum has one about Melbourne. Perfect! My three favorite cities in the planet...You know...Every time I see pictures like these I have the impression that my soul, or brain, or mind, whatever, is falling...
