    Thanks https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected], we do have the wrong address on here. In trying to confirm it, I went through lots of newspaper articles, ads, and maps. From several newspaper advertisements, I'm pretty certain Woolworth's address was 5248 Lankershim Blvd. In the mid 1980's that whole area was torn down and rebuilt so it looks nothing like it used to. After consulting some maps, I believe that road in the foreground is McCormick St., which now dead ends at a parking garage, but before the reconstruction crossed over to Lankershim. That would make sense with the photo you linked to if it was taken at Lankershim and Magnolia, it would then be looking toward the Woolworth's and McCormack St. If anyone confirm this or correct me, please do.

    Woolworth's address was 5248 Lankershim, on the corner of McCormick. It wasn't at Magnolia, which is the 5200 block of Lankershim. The numbers even at the south end of Lankershim don't go as low as 3200.
