March 16, 1936: Times artist Charles Owens and columnist Timothy Turner visit the St. Charles Hotel at 314 N. Main, which was formerly the Bella Union Hotel.

“This was one of the two best hotels in Los Angeles not so long ago as history goes,” Turner writes. “It was the famed Hotel Bella Union, built first of adobe about 1849 and rebuilt in exactly its present form in the late ’50s.”
