Does anyone recognise this Los Angeles street?

The gas station and the lettering on the building, which could have something to do with Dean Witter may help.

The images were both taken in August 1967 and could be different places.

Any assistance in identifying the location gratefully accepted.

Not sure. But I can tell you the car is a 1967 Dodge Polara.

Thanks for taking a look and confirming the make and model.

I'm hoping that in the intervening years something remains and that redevelopment has not made the entire area unrecognizable.

Haha at first I thought you actually meant "Los Angeles St" in DTLA.

Not sure that will work. I am hoping that someone can remember the street as it was (that's if it has changed much) and perhaps the gas station and signage can spark someone's memory. I'm also curious about the building in the distance with the small tower.

Can anyone help?

The first pic appears to be wilshire/westwood looking northwest with the old Sears building sign in the background. the second picture is almost certainly Wilshire blvd looking west at Glendon.

Many thanks for the information. Great detective work considering how many changes have taken place here.
