Desmond’s at Christmas Time, circa 1939

A group of people walks across the street in front of the Desmond’s store window. A large Christmas tree with a star on top is on the sidewalk in front of them. Over the years stores such as Desmond’s and Silverwoods have occupied Wilshire Tower’s ground floor while professionals have leased offices in the eight-story tower. Located at 5514 Wilshire Boulevard, the Zig-Zag Moderne building was designed by architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood and built in 1928. This building was designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #332 in 1987. Photograph circa 1939. (Herman J. Schultheis Collection; Los Angeles Public Library)
