Hollywood gets a new church, above.  (At left, Hollywood Presbyterian today.)
The northwest corner of 8th Street and Broadway (at right) sells for $234,000 ($5,144, 969.35 USD 2007) ...

Below left, sake is banned because it's impure ... The auction of a young Chinese bride (note the use of the term "Celestial")  ... A teamster is thrown into a gutter on Main Street when the team pulling his wagon becomes frightened and runs away ... A mother-daughter suicide pact ... And a car runs down a newsboy on a bicycle at 1st and Broadway and doesn't even stop.
