1960's Bunker Hill

One of the last remaining Mansions.





Angels Flight







Bunker Hill, Downtown LA at the beginning of the 1900's

• The Bradbury mansion stood at 147 N. Hill Street, just south of Court Street. This is the Bradbury of the Bradbury Building at Broadway and Third, and who built the Tajo Building just a stone's throw away at Broadway and First. The mansion had a varied career over its span, serving at times as a film studio and a restaurant. The street prominent in the foreground is the stub of Court Street as it approaches the near-cliff above Broadway. The Court Flight funicular would be built soon after this photograph was taken, the site of its upper terminus being at the lower left in this view.


• The lower 100s area of N. Hill Street is seen from the northeast here. Near center, the building with the two stories of breezeways is the Highland Villa, usually seen from the southeast. Here we see that the breezeways do not extend across the north side of the building. The Highland Villa was above the northwest corner of Hill and First Sts. The area we see beyond the HIghland Villa is all south of First Street. If we look carefully, we can see at upper right the little cupola of the Melrose Hotel. At lower left, we see a building with the word "Franklin" on the wall; this is a building on Broadway directly across the street from where Franklin Street—the former Jail Street—debouches onto Broadway.

can't believe that they torn down that beautiful church! :eek:hno:
That was St Joseph Catholic church. It was heavily damaged by an electrical short fire in 1986. The roof was completely gone with only the walls standing.

Great pictures and so hard to believe, what Bunker Hill looked like a couple of decades ago.

Has anyone here played LA Noire? It's insane how much detail was put into capturing historic Los Angeles. They have Pershing Square as it was then, the Subway Terminal building, and so many more! It's like this thread but living and breathing :).

Amazing how many buildings have actually been preserved Downtown.
