This crisp 1956 view from the Richard Wojcik collection showed up on Vintage Los Angeles this morning. We're looking north at the Orpheum as it's playing the Man Who Knew Too Much."
I just added the view to the Orpheum Theatre page. Also in the center, note the reddish "Newsreel" vertical -- for what is now the Tower Theatre.
But I'm really here to ask if you have checked out Alison Martino's Vintage Los Angeles page on Facebook? It's a delightful stream of interesting photos and data from many contributors. You can click on the image here to go to the full size view on Facebook.
