The Dominguez-Wilshire Building

The Dominguez-Wilshire Building

MILO M.
The Dominguez-Wilshire building (also called the Myer-Siegel Building) was designed in 1930 by architects Morgan Walls and Clemens. The Art Deco elements are still visible; especially the entrance has remained perfectly intact. Even the bronze chandelier and the bronze entrance door with many cross-decorations are still present. The same setup was used in the Wilshire Tower, two blocks west, with the symmetrical façade facing Wilshire blvd, rounded corners on the intersections, and a parkinglot with an entrance around the back. The 10 stories don't rise as high as the Wilshire Tower, but the building does make a statement among the other lowrises along Wilshire Boulevard. It was built in 1930 just before Black Monday hit, and the Miracle Mile came crashing down as Angelenos fled from the city. Stores closed and the streets were again barren. In 1934, rebuilding efforts resurrected the Mile, and brought moneymen back to the city. #air #angeles #architecture #art #beverly #boulevard #california #charles #cinema #deco #dove #fox #hills #landmark #lee #los #miami #mile #miracle #renovation #temple #theatre #white #wilshire #winged
