Bullock's Wilshire, at Wilshire and Westmoreland, opened in 1929 and closed in 1993. It is now the library of Southwestern University School of Law.

A reader asked where Bullock's Wilshire was located, so I thought I'd post a bit about the store, especially because I feature items that turn up on EBay. The store was already struggling against suburban malls when it was looted in the 1992 riots and closed the next year.
