What Was Demolished to Make Way For the Weedy Lot at Brand and Wilson

While perusing the excellent Vintage Glendale "The Jewel City" Facebook group today, I came across this photograph showing the lovely, nicely scaled buildings that were demolished many years ago to make way for the weedy, undeveloped lot that still sits at Brand and Wilson.

The lot is now for sale, which I posted about yesterday.

I think Leeds was a shoe store.

Yes, and apparently it moved to the Galleria for a time. Also, the Webb's building burned down in 1977.

My sister was a Webb Deb, a very prestigious position; I think just one for each high school.
