Photograph of a view of the Downey Block in Los Angeles at the site of the Post Office, 1900. A long, two story building is at center and stretches across almost the entire image. The upper story is light-colored, while the bottom is darker. There are long lines of arched windows on both levels, although on the bottom level they are broken up by doorways. A large cloth awning projects from the building at left. There is a streetcar in the street in front of the building at right, and several pedestrians can be seen as well.; Legible signs include, from left to right: "Ming House", "Entire Stock at Auction This Building to be Torn Down Jan 1, 1900[...]U.S.P.O.", "Iron Beds Furniture J.N. Hoyston Mattresses", "[...]neral Aurthur", and "St. Elmo".
