Hollywood's golden age has passed, but its architecture remains. Piles such as this one testify to the aspirations and opulence of an era quickly being erased from both the cultural memory and physical realm of the city of Los Angeles

The building is that strange type of art deco design with undertones of Mexican influence and tropical aspirations that was once so common in L.A.
