The safe-deposit boxes were all pinstriped.

Also, in the bathroom, which was also the janitor's room, was this massive, bulbous urinal. One day, a plumber came in to fish my contact lens out of the sink drain and told me that it was a design that was intended to serve both males and females.

I sure wish I had taken that box of pen nibs.

To link this to the thread theme: This intersection is also the location of the seedy office building where Canino poisons Harry Jones in The Big Sleep.

Why is everybody in this picture laughing?

I don't see four stories buildings at this intersection. Two stories maximum. Was Raymond Chandler once again not checking the likelihood of his locations ?
Yes, I've come to that conclusion.
