Wilshire Boulevard at La Brea Avenue, 1928

One thought on “Wilshire Boulevard at La Brea Avenue, 1928

  1. Note, the Bank of Italy on the corner, which if looking east, means that Bank of America N.A. is situated there today. The Bank of Italy merged with the smaller Bank of America, Los Angeles (BoA L.A), predecessor of Bank of America N.A. in the 1928. In 1930, Amadeo Giannini, the founder of the Bank of Italy, changed the name “Bank of Italy” to “Bank of America.” Bank of America operates under the original charter for the Bank of Italy.
