I would appreciate a little help here.
When I first moved to Los Angeles in '79 I took residence at this building on the corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Veteran in Westwood.
The address was 10990 Wilshire Blvd. A high-rise office building stands there now directly across Veteran from the Federal building.
Here you can see the ariel photo of the building just to the right of the Fed building across veteran Ave.:
I would very much appreciate any more photos or stories that anybody can find about this building (I already know about Chris' Water Buffalo club - funny story/history)
When I lived there the main front business was The Who's Who Passport Photos with bar around the corner sporting the same name where I spent many blissful hours....
I believe the building was originally called The Barbizon or Barbazon Chateau.
My apt. was at the bay window, 2nd floor just to the right of the round tower. Jonathan Dayton co-director of Little Miss Sunshine lived across the hall from me then in the apartment with the square window, 2nd floor, far right. He was attending UCLA Film School and hired us musicians to play at "Kerckhoff Coffee House" being in charge then:

I would appreciate if anybody could find more photos or history on this building.
