This installment in the Sunset Boulevard Series takes us to St. Vincent Hospital in Los Angeles, California. Built in 1884 at the intersection of Sunset and North Beaudry Avenue it was in operation for ninety years until 1974 when a new Hospital was constructed at 2131 West Third Street, in Los Angeles. This structure was demolished after the move to the new building.
The lead image and the two enlargeable views of the Hospital dated 1937 show a number of automobiles parked on Sunset Boulevard and the cross street on the left-hand side of the Health Center. The earliest car in the scene located just to the left of center in the photo above is a mid-to-late-twenties Dodge touring car with disc wheels. Tells us what you find of interest in the photograph courtesy of the USC Libraries.
