Photograph of a view of Broadway between Second Street and Third Street, showing the old Los Angeles City Hall, ca.1905. The city hall building is across the street at center and is identified by a massive rectangular tower. There are other tall buildings on both sides of the street, most between two and five stories high. The street is paved and is divided by streetcar tracks in the middle. Several early-model automobiles can be seen on the road, and many pedestrians are walking along the sidewalks.; The Bradbury Building (1893) can be seen farther down the left side of the street at the intersection of Third and Broadway (304 S. Broadway). It is quite likely the only extant structure of all those pictured in this photo.; Legible signs include, from left to right: "Hotel", "Russo's Jewelry Store Branch of Naples, Italy", "Parker's Book Store", "Mrs. Patten's Employment Office", "New York Pleating & Button Co.", " The Merick Reynolds Co.", "Kodaks", "Pig 'n Whistle", and "Coulter Dry Goods Co.".
