Coulter’s Department Store, circa 1939

Designed by Stiles O. Clements, this classic Streamline Moderne building was built in 1938 by Coulter’s Dry Goods. The store changed hands in the 1970s and became the Broadway Department Store. After the building was demolished in 1980 the site remained vacant until the late-2000s, when a 5-story mixed-use structure was built. It is the most significant art deco structure ever to be demolished in the Miracle Mile

    In 1967 I lived up on San Vicente Blvd near Hauser. I was only a kid but I visited this department store many times. I’m pretty sure it was already a Broadway Dept store by then. Across Hauser on South-West corner was the Calfornia Federal Bank Building that rose more than 25 stories. I used to deliver the Herald Examiner back then. Cal Fed building was on my route.
