Broadway and Seventh St., 1905
In 1905 an unknown photographer shot a 11-frame pananorama from the roof of the Lankershim Hotel (no longer extant). The author has stitched the panorama together. This page examines details from the original frames. (Click to zoom to details).
The former Lankershim Hotel at the corner of Broadway and Seventh St, Los Angeles. This was, until about 1940, the busiest intersection in Los Angeles.
Single frame of the 1905 panorama. Annotation correctly indicates line of sight as "North from 7th on Broadway," but incoorectly dates the image as "1907." See detail of banner advertising an event in January 1906, by clicking to "zoom" within the fine white line boxes.
