Gedung Sate, is a neo-classical building mixed with native elements. Once the seat of the Dutch East Indies department of Transport, Public Works and Water Management, it now serves as the governor's office of the West Java province in Indonesia. Located in Bandung, it was built in 1920 after a design by Dutch architect J. Gerber.

Captain H H Davies of Birkenhead, checks a collection of paintings found in the house of a member of the SS in Hanover who had looted them from The Netherlands. Captain Davies was in charge of the Property Control Department of the Military Government, his job being to take over Nazi controlled buildings and property, including looted works of art. The latter were held for safe keeping until returned in due course to their rightful owners.

Here, we’re looking west along Wilshire Blvd from the corner of La Brea Ave in December 1932. Pretty much the only thing still standing in this photo is the Dominguez Building which used to house the Myer Siegel & Co. department store, and the Art Deco building farther along at 5500 Wilshire worth slowing down for if you’re driving past it. I especially love that cute little Dyas-Carlton Café on the corner; it later became the much larger McDonnell’s Wilshire Café.

The Pierres Vives building of the department de l’Herault is characterised by the unification of three institutions – the archive, the library and the sports department – within a single envelope.
