Photograph of a view of Wilshire Boulevard from Ardmore Avenue, March, 1956. Wilshire is a wide, paved street that runs from the distance at left into the foreground at right. Several automobiles can be seen parked along the cement curbs. Wide concrete sidewalks line the street, and a small number of pedestrians is visible. Most of the buildings along the road are low structures, but there is a large building with a massive dome at center, while two skyscrapers can be seen in the background at left. Several palm trees are visible.; Legible signs include, from left to right: "Ardmore Ave 600 S", "Jean Leonard", "Mary Kitchen", "Liquor", "Coca Cola", "Arden Old Fashioned Buttermilk in the Churn Carton", "Kingsley Dr.", "Copease Copies Everything", "Copease Corporation", "3563", and "No Stopping 7 to 9 AM 4 to 6 PM 1 Hour Parking 9 AM to 4 PM".
