Is this cool looking theater still standing?

Google Maps 3-D view is your friend, the theater is still there. Here's the Google Street View:
GSV

The back of the theater is on Wilshire.

Thanks so much Noir Noir. I looked everywhere trying to figure out the name of the club. (except for Cheryl Crain's book)

I'll post a portion of the 1956 aerial later, but the configuration of the buildings on it seem to indicate that the Wadsworth buildings were razed to build the West LA VA. The Bentwood buildings mostly remain.

I guess the difference between the two(other than still standing) is Brentwood is north of Wilshire and Wadsworth was south of Wilshire.

Thanks for answering my question BillinGlendale. I appreciate it.

If I remember correctly, there's also a hazardous waste dump nearby (detritus from the hospital and labs).

I'ii check Google-Earth to see if I can figure out where it is.

Here's how the V.A. Hospital looked when it was known as the Sawtelle Veterans Home.


wiki

Most of the 1890s era buildings were demolished in the 1960s.

I'm pretty sure we have seen this amazing photograph once (or twice) before on NLA.

The chapel is still there, you can see it from Wilshire. I'm pretty sure the 1890 buildings were long gone before the 1960's, the current buildings show up on the 1956 aerial.

Many of the patients were Civil War veterans.

Many or most of those old buildings were torn down due to earthquake damage and obvious obsolescence. Most hospital buildings have a life-span of about 50 years.

The size of the tallest palm trees suggests that they are the original ones which we see in the early photo downthread (very slow growing!). Palm trees take to transplanting quite well, so they might well have been shifted to accommodate a new layout; but I'd bet they are the palms original to the site.
