The Hollywood-Western Building, constructed in 1928 from a design by architect S. Charles Lee, on the southwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue

The Hollywood-Western Building, constructed in 1928 from a design by architect S. Charles Lee, on the southwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue.  A four-story Art Deco structure that once housed the famed Central Casting offices - embellished with cast ornamentation (of course), including some odd nude figures, intended as a monument to the historic, cultural and economic significance of the movies.  On January 6, 1988, it was declared Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument 336.
