This is a now a specialty textile factory at the corner of Highland and Willoughby, a building from 1928 by W. J. Saunders. One architectural writer says when the sun rakes the building at midday the effect is that of the Casa de las Conchas in Segovia. Well, maybe. This is midday. You decide. But 1928 was obviously an exuberant year in Hollywood.

Next door, at 940 North Highland Avenue, is the image shop Workbook, and the have two markets - art buyers, including creative directors, art directors, designers and corporate art departments, and then, photographers, illustrators, designers, letterers and suppliers to the graphic arts industry. And they have a surreal dog on top of their shabby half-hearted Streamline Moderne offices. There is no explanation of the dog in their literature.
