We're picking up from where we left off yesterday. Sort of.
If you knew the 107 S. Fair Oaks Building when it was the Hotel Carver, you understand why I photographed it from this rather unattractive angle. I over-sharpened the photo, so when you enlarge it you can see the detail.
This copy of a well-known picture of the building comes courtesy of Hearken Creative's flickr photostream. Wikipedia's article about the Carver says this mural was painted by Paul Waszink (who I'm told rented space in the building at the time he painted it). The wall, and the proverbial writing on it, was damaged in the 1987 Whittier Narrows Earthquake.
In the top photo you can also see the pale spots where the original bay windows were. The windows were removed in the 1950s when Fair Oaks Avenue was widened.
