Photograph of the exterior view of the Pacific Mutual Life Insurance Building, on the corner of Olive Street and Sixth Street, Los Angeles, ca.1909. The five-story Romanesque-style building features ornamental moldings, a large cornice encircling the building's top floor, column buttresses, and pedimented doors and windows. To the right of the insurance building is a building with a spired tower (church or cathedral?). A streetcar, displaying a sign that reads "Washington St.", is about to cross the intersection. People are seen walking down the street or crossing the street. Utility wires zigzag across the streets.
