oops! I didn't realize andrea517 had reposted my pics.
Sorry for the duplicates below....I thought I needed them for comparison's sake.

I seem to have a bit of a mystery here.

After my post on the Ebell Club I thought I would view the club on Google Street View.

This is the Ebell Club fronting on Wilshire. Now compare it with the color postcard and photo above.



Even though the color postcard has a theater in the right place, the main building looks entirely different.
I know that there were numerous Ebell Clubs across the country (and even in the Los Angeles area) so it's possible this is a different location.
