See if you can solve it by the time I get to Illinois.

PCH and Alameda in Willmington. There's an overpass for PCH there now that goes over Alameda and the Alameda corridor. Paramount Forge is still there.

Re: 'Mystery' location. The location is adjacent 1729 E Pacific Coast Hwy, Wilimington, CA near the i/s of Alameda St. It appears the corner restaurant is gone and an automobile junkyard has replaced it. The big clue, Paramount Forge, is extant on E. Colon St to the north.

I'm not sure if this location was ever found....
I am trying to think of neighborhoods and cities that have streets on a grade as steep as we see here. Hermosa Beach came to mind, but the housing there is almost entirely post-WWII. The Perry Mason dwellings are obviously older than that. Silverlake/Echo Park maybe? San Pedro is another possibility.

Hollywood Ice Cream Company was located at 631 North La Cienega.
It was recently Le Petit Bistro, which I believe closed in July after 25 years.

Thanks you two! I appreciate the help.





Here's another one from the survey project.

"Signal Hill, Willow and Cherry, Facing Southwest"......from the Long Beach, California Documentary Survey Project, 1980.

This photographer is known for her small photographs. This one is 2 1/2 x 2 3/8 in.

Gelatin silver print on paper mounted on paperboard.
