The building across the street is the old May Co. building, which dates from the 40's, I believe. It is now part of LACMA. The Bullocks Wilshire building is nearer Western Avenue, on the south side of the street.

This is a really great blog, by the way. Thanks for making it happen!

You are so right. Indeed, the building at the corner of Fairfax and Wilshire is the May Co. Building.
