Dominguez-Wilshire Building, circa 1970s

Dominguez-Wilshire Building, 5400-5420 Wilshire Boulevard. This building represents a classic Moderne type of the 1920s and 1930s. A central tower is presented as an attenuated vertical block where the scale is deceptively presented so that one is not aware of its actual height. The tower is held in place by two-story wings to each side; zigzag (Art Deco) relief ornament. Photograph circa 1970. (Library of Congress; Call Number: HABS CAL,19-LOSAN,39–1)
