Broadway Department Store on Wilshire Boulevard, 1978

Broadway Department Store on Wilshire Boulevard, 1978. Looking southeast from across Wilshire Boulevard towards the Broadway store. Located at 5600 Wilshire Boulevard and designed by Stiles O. Clements, this classic Streamline Moderne building was first occupied in 1938 by Coulter’s Dry Goods. In the 1970s, the store changed hands and became a Broadway. After the building was demolished in 1980, the site remained vacant until the late-2000s, when a 5-story mixed-use structure was built. (Marlene Laskey Collection; Los Angeles Public Library)
