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.
"You have been doubted, hated, talked about, made fun of, hurt, lied to, broken, and at your wits end. With that being said, I commend you for the fact that you are still standing. Your courage speaks volumes. I know your struggle & the pain you've endured. You are more than a conqueror. Nothing can keep you down & no one can steal your joy. Don't give up, continue to stand tall & love yourself first. You are appreciated. ~ Anonymous
The Paul Revere House - On the night of April 18, 1775, silversmith Paul Revere left his small wooden home in Boston's North End and set out on a journey that would make him into a legend. Today that home is still standing at 19 North Square and has become a national historic landmark. It is downtown Boston's oldest building and one of the few remaining from an early era in the history of colonial America.
