Station No 6 and Vine Street School

Station No 6 - Los Angeles, California

Station No 6 – Los Angeles, California

Continuing with the short tour of Vine Street in Los Angeles, I found these two industrial buildings. Both of these were a block or two south of Santa Monica Blvd.

This was an eclectic neighborhood. A mishmash of stores, restaurants, businesses, and even a school. I wonder if there is zoning of any kind. Perhaps it’s like Houston where anything goes.

Station No 6 is part of the LA Department of Water and Power. I didn’t know that at the time when I took the photo. I just liked the simple industrial architecture. Even so, there are a few architectural flourishes that make it more attractive than today’s big-box retail stores.

Vine Street School - Los Angeles, California

One more block south, and we have an industrial building of another kind. It’s a place where they take young kids and transforms them into functional entities in today’s society — better known as an elementary school.

The colorful mosaic is a nice touch. However, the warnings and instructional signage that flank the entrance detracts.
